  1. I have a 351C with an Edelbrock intake and 600 cfm carb. It has a comp cam, 32-224-4. .519/.224 intake and .519/.224 exhaust with electronic ignition and 40000 volt Pertronix coil. Can anyone tell me the timing should be? Thanks in advance.
  2. I Used a simple 9 volt battery and two leads. Had no problems and I did not burn out the lights. if you have LED's, I used the same 9 volt and extended the small wires off the bulbs and touched the contacts. you may have to switch the wires around from the battery posts, as it will only light one way. that's the simplest way I found. Thank You
  3. Can anyone tell me how to check my dash lights while I have my dash on the work bench? Proper voltage and where to ground. Thanks
  4. I replaced the headlight switch too, forgot to mention.
  5. 1972 mach 1. Instrument panel lights went out. I replaced the fuse, the printed circuit, the bulbs and the in dash voltage regulator. I checked all my connections and they were good. The dome light went out at the same time. Ideas? Thanks
  6. I have a dist. with an electronic ignition. I need 12 volts during cranking and after starting. I want to be able to start the engine as well as turn the engine with the key.
  7. I need a 12 volt constant going thru the key switch. Does anyone know which wire I need to use? 1972 Mach 1. Thanks
  8. SB Ford 351C 351M 400M Small Cap HEI Electronic Distributor Ready To Run 1970-79 and a 45000v coil. The distributor has a red and a black wire. Can you tell me how to wire this setup? Dist to the coil, power supply and anything else that I need to know. I ran 12v constant and the red dist. wire to the pos. side of the coil and the black dist. wire and the ground wire from the solenoid to the neg. side of the coil. When I try to start the motor I have power on both sides of the coil but nothing to the distributor. Thanks
  9. Did it not come with some sort of directions or manual? If it's the one I'm thinking it is, send it back now. https://swperformanceparts.com/R2R6706BL/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwivbsBRDsARIsADyISJ_ijKWgiJ5uMuuXliVfFtm1hg9IAywzoc4EytGrok6fYJpKJ1nvB2gaAg92EALw_wcB I bought one of this type off Amazon, just to see how bad it was. Not only did it arrive damaged, it was one of the biggest POSes I've ever held in my hands.
  10. Alright guys, I sent all the Gm stuff back. I got a SB Ford 351C 351M 400M Small Cap HEI Electronic Distributor Ready To Run 1970-79 with a 45000v coil. The distributor has a red and a black wire. Can you tell me how to wire this setup? Dist to the coil, power supply and anything else that I need to know. Thanks
  11. Alright guys, I want to thank all of that offered help. I sent the GM stuff back and ordered a ford HEI and a 45000 volt coil. Should be easy. Thanks again.
  12. The hei that I am using has the coil in the cap.
  13. The only problem with using that red/green wire for a HEI relay is that the tachometer will not register a signal. True But if his HEI needs a full 12 volts at run there is not much he can do without running an msd tach adapter or something similar is there?
  14. Please excuse my ignorance. The relay you refer to is the solenoid? I checked the voltage and it drops to 9.6 when cranking. Could you possibly draw a diagram of the wiring? I would be so grateful. Thanks
  15. I will check the voltage. What can I do about the tach/ Thanks
  16. The hei instructions were clear to run a 12 volt wire that is hot when you turn the key on to the battery side of the dist. and tach wire to the other side of the dist. It says nothing about a relay or a trigger wire.
  17. I have a 1972 Mach 1 with a 351 Cleveland motor. I installed a 2 wire hei distributor. Took out the stock distributor and the coil. I wired a dedicated 12 volt wire to the bat. side of the unit and the tach led to the other side. It will not start or even backfire. Is there something else I need to disconnect? Even though the unit is new could it be bad? I really need some help here. Thanks in advance.
