Re: Autolite 1100 Venturi Mod

If you want to delete the SCV this is the time to convert it to ported vacuum. With ported you delete the venturi vacuum tube & plug the exit with a 6-32 brass set screw.
There is a link on this forum in the tech section on the other 2 blocked ports.

If you had the DS11 distributor the MSD-6al is a great option.
Don't waste your money to add one to the HEI or DUI.

If you did not purchase one from me your curve is out to lunch. could even damage your engine if over advanced. Bill
