  • IH carb with ford egnition

    Maybe I'm not understanding or not seeing how this is done. We have great information on how to put the ford guts into an IH distributor, but how do I make it work with a carborated engine? I see i would need the base plate and reluctor. But to get it to activate th coil there needs to be something more. I'm guessing I need the coil and something that will activate it. and how does it get wired in. Just wanting to do this one step at a time until I can go fully TBI.

    Just trying to get a list of parts before I go to the "parts store".

    thanks for the help,

    Alan:confused:

      Thanks, I'll Be shopping soon!

      I actually read through that post before but I seemed to have missed it. I think I thought that it was still going to hook up to the TBI. Thanks again.

        O.k, I've been studying this for a while now. I won't be doing the fuel injection for quite some time.

        The points have GOT to go! They fry ALL the time. I don't care why they fry, I just want them gone.

        With the dura-spark set-up, and new holley distributor from the bone-yard, do I still use the vacuum advance? or just centrif.?

          Use both...Then when you decide to go FI you can just disable them.

          Don't forget the late 70's early 80's DS dist and ignition box while your at the yard!

          If you have the holley points dist...there was another guy who just ground the high spots off the lobes where the points ride and used it for the DS conversion.
          Never tried it my self but I don't see why it wouldn't work.

            which parts do I need to grab?

            Going to the "bone-yard" tomorrow. I need to be sure of my shopping list...There is a dist. on a 392 travel-all, and one on a scout I hope. Are they interchangeable?

            Also, the instructions say a 6 cyl. ford pick-up? why only 6 cyl.? I need the dist. off the 302???

              I would think that all of the DuraSpark pickups are the same, and only the reluctor is different. You must have a reluctor and ignition module for the same number of cylinders that your engine has.

                Where does it say 6 cyl??? which instructions are you referring to.
                The 345 and 392 will use the same dist. But the year will make a difference...points, GB, prestolite.

                You should be looking for a late 70 early 80 V-8 duraspark dist. the 302-351 will be the same and I think the 460 I used to have was the same also.

                  Bill I think he is reading the Prestolite conversion. There is something in there that says 6 cyl something but I have not read it closly.
                  Posumm scout you should read this article befor you go.

                  and this is the IH distributor you need.

                    , I couldn't remember at first where I read about the 6 cylinder thing. I am not going to use my prestolite, because of the machine work involved. (Nearest machine shop is an all day trip!) I actually live way out in the high desert, accessed only by miles of wash board roads!

                    My other half said he spotted someplace on this board that the holley points distributor is the same as the electronic if you just remove the points assembly off the top? Is this true?

                    (oh, I am female, I noticed someone thought I was a "he";) )

                    I know the information I need is probably somewhere right on this board, but I am kind of pressed for time, and am having trouble finding everything. Please bear with me! I live off grid, and can only stay on-line while my battery packs are up, or while I have my generator running!

                    thank you all! possum scout

                      dist

                      someone on here just used the point dist but said he ground the point lobes down some with a bench grinder.
                      I use the holley gold box dist for mine just cause I had them.
                      Since the reluctor sets on top of where the old reluctor or points were I don't see why the point dist would not work.

                      Thanks for clearing up the gender thing for Mark!!!!!!!

                        D'oh! Sorry about the he thing!

                        It is true the Holley points and Gold box distributor are the same when you take off the top. But you use the top on the Duraspark conversion.

                        Your description of home sounds like where I used to live. It was great!
