    Haha. Yea ignition systems can get pricey quick! I planing on keeping tht setup under $500 from coil to ecm. But then, tuning will be limitless. To a certain degree..lol

    That's a great engine IMO. Some dude named Jordan here in my city has one in his truck. Scraplux. Gears seam to be too tall tho.. what transmission would you use with that?

    Got the Pertronix ignitor this past Saturday and it was a no go. So @Pearce was correct about it not working.

    the collar that slips over the nubs/lobes didnt fit on the newer dizzy. So that shit got shipped back.

    i have driven the truck and its running good. Il be trying a few other non ignition related things to see if it helps at all. Because i really dont like the new starting procedure im having to deal with

    Not yet. I already know its too much because im running the pump straight to the carb. I have a FPR and gauge i need to install to hopefully help with the vapor lock issues ive had in the past. Maybe itl help my starting issues too

    If you're running into vapor lock a return will be your best bet. You can get a fuel filter that has one and run it straight off the pump because that's where you're probably boiling the fuel.

    I got a bypass style FPR im going to put in so il have a return line again. I originally got rid of if because the hardline was kinked.

    Probably worth it to check the float and needle after you get it set up. My rig has been hard to start after going to high on fuel pressure. If you know you had vapor lock before the pressure likely started creeping up then messing things up.

    That's how my fuel pump went out, it would hesitate on starts and after a good run, it wouldn't start till it was cold again..smh. even a clogged filament can make this symptom.

    So ive driven the truck a few times and sometimes itl start fine others it still wont. Shows some symptoms of vapor lock that last longer than they used to. Tried to drive it yesterday morning and it wouldnt start. Got home from work with an agenda and pretty much readjusted the carb and got it running good.
    Tried it this morning and it fired up first try like before, and again a little ago and and again first try it fires up.

    now just gotta see if whatever i did fixed it.

    heres a couple shots from monday morning
