78 f250 460 build unilite upgrade?


Recommended Posts

I have a 78 F250 that Im building a replacement 460 for, the motor is from a 76 lincoln, nothing fancy, but i do have a more aggressive cam, and was wanting to do the smog delete and straight up timing on.


I came across a Unilite distributor w/ vac advance for really cheap. My truck has the duraspark setup already but has to be recurved for the new timing set? Anway i have this mallory unit and was wondering is it can be used in place of, or conjunction to the duraspark setup. what advantages or disadvantages might I have.


I downloaded the instructions for mallory, but i think its made me more perplexed then when I started lol

Mallory is kaput. I would recurve the duraspark.


Cam timing and ignition timing are two different things.


Be careful on how aggressive you go on the new cam. A factory 1976 460 would be lucky to have 8:1 compression.

73 conv. 460, D0VE large valve heads, Performer RPM manifold, Voodoo 227/233 cam, Holley 950 HP carb, C6 trans, 3.25 trak-loc.
