Re: Installing Accel dist in 350
WILL YOU BACK OFF, AND, STOP POSTING YOUR CRAP. We here are trying to help the OP, NOT confuse him further with stuff that does not work.
Now, if someone will do an experiment, or, even better, more than one of you, go out and start the car up, have someone hold the foot brake down, and in gear, add fuel, and WATCH THE ENGINE MOVE, report it back here.
I am usually the person for a hundred miles in any direction that has to fix the idiocy done with things like steptoe's farces, to all sorts of vehicles, and the way I found this wasn't in math, although I am very good at math, but, by actually watching an engine move in a pickup truck chassis, when put in gear, after the engine was "repositioned" by a very reputable chassis shop in So. Cal., to allow clearance for the big cap HEI that had been stuffed into it, against the firewall. This wasn't the only truck butchered up this way, more than a few from the same pickup club had the same chassis shop, do the same work, with the same results, only about a half inch clearance between coil/cap and firewall, NONE when in gear and revved up.
Also, pinion angle is critical, it is finite, and NOT "adaptable", get it wrong, and the result isn't good at all.
Just why is it always an absolute war to get the good, truthful, accurate info out to those that ask for it, past all the smoke, mirrors and bull?
Me, I have worked for Duntov directly, at Skunk Works, on development of engines AND the large cap HEi, and do same for a MotoGP team right now, engine design/development, and have worked for Holley, Shelby, and other venues for many years. I do not know how I got so stupid from responding to steptoe's inaccurate blatherings. Enough is enough. I do this stuff EVERY DAY, fix things others profess to work, that flat do not, EVERY DAY.
Phantom Rider, the ceramics are a good way to go if you need protection from header heat, they work well to keep the wires working the way they should, good on you for your insight.
Let's help the OP, NOT make it worse for him, PLEASE.
