More or less, I guess. They all hurt more than they used to, but that's a function of time more than anything else, lol

IMO, the HEI was always the better option. You get an entirely brand-new ignition system. With the 'juice box' or "TFI upgrade', you still had your old 30+ year old distributor and ignition module,...

The hardened gear stuff is mostly old news, like 10 years ago. The more "known" companies don't have that issue anymore. If you buy one off Ebay and it's a 'no-name', then you might want to stick...

Yes, you need a shroud. No reason to change the radiator unless you just want to for peace of mind....which IS worth something.

You need to cut it out, or it's going to get worse and ruin any repair you make.

You are correct in assuming a stick welder won't work...can't weld thin sheet metal with one unless you are an...

1976? I think that has Prestolite in it?

There really is no good upgrade for that unit itself, without changing the whole thing out.
Since that's what (assuming you have that model) needs to be...

Correct. He had somewhat of a stake in the topic, as he loved people using "his" conversion of the stock system to a large cap setup and having people thank him for it. He got off on that so you...

They will ask you a load of questions to take care of all that. Alcan is pretty thorough.

I filled out the form to order them online, then the dude called me back and asked me a ton more before...

Must have been an older distributor with the hardened gear. The newer ones don't have that issue.

Rather than doing all that work to just get the factory setup almost even with an HEI, why not just put a good gear on the HEI and be done with it?

For mostly street use, the T176 behind a 304.

If you want to crawl, then the T18....but on the street, the T18 is basically a 3-speed, so I'd much rather have a real 4-speed on the street....and...

You don't need a ballast resistor with an HEI. The HEI module has a current limiting circuit built-in. It needs 12 volts at all times.

Your 8203 Blaster coil does not need a resistor with an...

As I mentioned before, the claimed voltage of the coil does not affect your module. Only 12 volts is passing through the module to the coil. The high voltage ONLY happens in the coil and to the...

Not really. Coils can fail because of heat, but they don't really "build resistance" just by getting old.
Coils actually rarely fail. They are frequently replaced, but they are rarely actually...

Give us the exact rig the tranny came out of, and we can look up (hopefully) the bore size of the master in that truck.

Then you'll know if the stock Jeep one will work or not.

Do you know the bore size of your slave? The stock Jeep one I think is 7/8". If your slave is the same, it'll work.

Here's food for thought: Consider switching to an external slave. Why? ...

I put a new plate for my clutch pedal on there. Used a YJ pedal because I switched to hydraulic brakes, and the pad mount was different. Cut a piece of sheet metal in the right shape and welded it...

The "voltage rating" of the coil is just advertisement. There's no such thing as "too much coil for the module".

Make sure the pickup (some call it the stator) isn't going bad and you're not just disturbing it and making it work again by fooling with the module.
