  1. Thanks Don C. I noticed that, but I can't distinguish between OEM and non-OEM Duraspark systems.
  2. Would this work? I'm thinking maybe not. But was this hoping it would and keep the wiring as clean and neat as possible with no splicing. But it looks like there may be some extra wires here as compared to the schematic mjlan posted above. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/aww-500918
  3. Nice!! I'd even like an option where the author that stared the thread can do a special "summary post" to do just that, summarize what they found and learned that got the issue resolved, and then it actually locks the thread. This way someone looking into the same issue doesn't have to dig through 10 pages of posts to see what finally got it all resolved. That's my only issue with repair forums. Very often the original author never comes back to let everyone know the issue is fixed and any important details they found along the way. The threads just sort of die. It can be like reading a
  4. I replaced my PS hoses from the top. Seemed to be the best way. Did I do it the non-conventional way?
  5. Thanks for the info on the connector. I have never seen one of those before. I have the red box. OMG!!! That .60 is the grand canyon of spark plug gaps!!!!
  6. Every coil I've ever used has had screw in terminals. I've never seen a connector type like this. What's the proper connector to these posts?
  7. I went with Beverly Hills Auto Covers. Their indoor cover is very inexpensive, but good quality and soft inside. I didn't think their price for an outdoor cover was bad either. Overall very happy. https://www.beverlyhillsautocovers.com/car-covers-new/bh-premium-in-door-2-layer-car-cover.html?find=1973-ford-mustang-mach-i-197148 Thank you for your order from Beverly Hills Auto Covers. Once your package ships we will send an email with a link to track your order. If you have questions about your order, you can email us at supp
  8. We'll see how this setup does as far as easier starting, smoother idle an less raw fuel smell at idle goes. If I'm not satisfied, I'll jump up to the Taylor or MSD setup. This was pretty inexpensive, so it won't kill me to abandon it if I have to.
  9. Sadly, I agree. Chinese product across a broad spectrum of industries have seen a huge upgrade in their quality the last couple of years. The mainstream marketplace was finally starting to see Chinese product for what it was... cheap, but crap. With the improvements in quality that many of their plants are starting to put out now, the Chinese are actually becoming a bigger thereat than they ever were. Having said that I still try to buy Made in USA whenever it makes sense.
  10. Appreciate all of the suggestions and options guys. I think I'm going to go with Hemikiller's suggestion on the Duraspark setup through Rock Auto.
  11. Did you have to get a smaller bracket for their coil?
  12. They actually suggested that I go with the MSD 6AL box and a blaster coil. They say that's the more popular option for folks right now. So I kept the dizzy and wires on order. I'm sure the MSD box would be superior to this, correct?
  13. Well, that didn't go well..... Chris, Unfortunately the E.D. Module and Coil kit is no longer available and our website has not been updated. We can cancel this part off your order and continue with the Duraspark Distributor or we can cancel the entire order. Please advise on how you would like to proceed? Our apologies for the inconvenience. Thank you. Brian Performance Distributors (DUI) 2699 Barris Drive Memphis, TN 38132 901-396-5782
  14. I ordered it Tuesday knowing full well it will take that long, but I'm already like a kid who just can't wait for Christmas day. Is it here yet, Is it here yet????
