Re: 200ci 1965 Mustang- Need some experienced help

Do a volume test on the fuel pump. You are right you have a real challenge here.

Aaron, so when it quits running, & you actuate the throttle does the accelerator pump shoot fuel into the venturi area?? If it shoots fuel & the fuel bowl is full I would replace the condenser & road test. Do you have voltage @ the coil??? Another way to check the coil is by heating it w...

Aaron, the fuel tank cap vent is clogged. That would cause the engine starving for fuel after driving??? Hook a fuel pressure gauge to the fuel pump outlet when driving & see what happens. Check the float in the carb & there should be a wire clip to pull the needle from the seat when the fue...

Re: New Distributor for 254 Flatty

What is the best total advance on those engines??? I'm sure the compression ratio is very low, but the flatheads have poor flame travel in the chambers.
I'm sure i could curve one on my Sun Distributor Tester. But would need specs.

Re: Fuel Injected 200 NA

On the Sniper you have to lock out the centrifugal advance.
I would recommend to get rid of the points & go with a DS11 distributor.
Use an MSD-6al & a Blaster 2 or 3 coil if you want the best. The DS11 will also need to have the advance locked out.

Chad you also should use a coil with low primary resistance. MSD Blaster 2 or 3. Pertronix also just came out with a low resistance primary winding coil. Lower than .5 ohms
The Ford TCI coil has the lowest resistance of all .3 ohms.

Possible use of Honda rods which have a rod bearing diameter close to 1.88, whether the rod journal on the crank could take that much under sizing.
