Re: HEI Distributor

I used a cheap-o HEI off of amazon and a new Carter carb from Mike’s carburetor parts to solve all of my feedback carb problems. Since I junked the FB carb, the truck has been running fine for about 6 months with the carb and the distributor. I mostly drive it on weekends, but other than the HEI and...

Re: Best source for quality re manufactured Carter YFA?

I deleted the feedback carb from mine, and so could not rebuild the feedback version I had. Couldn’t find a good donor locally at a junk yard to rebuild and by the time I buy a rebuild kit pay shipping and carb on eBay - buying a new one from Mike’s didn’t seem much more. He doesn’t have a lot of co...

Re: Distributor

I’d be interested in more info on this as well. I was trying to do a DS II swap in my truck, and went through several junkyards around and watched craigslist for a few weeks calling after parts... never came close to finding what I needed and I’m trying to get mine running soon. finally just ordered...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

Are you checking with a voltmeter? Yes using a voltmeter. Since the thread started I got a new one because reading the amp draws my old one was fluctuating a lot. It was old and a cheap one to start with. Primary side is the bottom right and middle wires in your image. So the middle wire is ground ...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

Thanks again for your thinking - auto electrical is not my strong suite. So - yes it clicks whether the ignition is off or on - on New Years - I hooked the battery up at 8:30 am and no clicking no draw checked it every hour - until around 10:30. As soon as I unplugged teh EEC the draw stopped. I can...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

Thanks for that infor MechRick, I will read up on VPWR ... got most of my info about the EEC here - https://easyautodiagnostics.com/ford/4.9L-5.0L-5.8L/eec-power-relay-tests-3 but it seems to fit with what I am seeing. Basically what that site says is that the hot wire comes from the starter solenoi...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

So I tried a totally new method today and discovered there is definitely a draw and it has something to do with the EEC- Hopefully if anyone can help it might help someone else with a similar problem. Today I hooked the battery up at 8:30 and tested the draw and the battery charge / volts without ru...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

So the battery does drop back to 12.6 over a couple of hours.I just want t make sure that over charging was not hurting the battery because something ruined the previous battery. As far as how long to kill it- it was over night, but previously the first time it happened the alternator as not hooked ...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

Thanks for the thoughts- so I am definitely considering the DS II conversion as a next step, but need to read up more to pull the right parts etc. Over the weekend I changed the plugs and wires- before the change the #1 plug would not flash the timing light, when I pulled the plug there was basicall...

Re: 82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

Thanks for your replies - so yes it was reading .6 milliamps from what I can tell. So I went out yesterday morning and tried the test again and it read 3-5 miliamps and it was jumping all around. After a few minutes it stabilized at around 1.0 milliamps and stayed there. The only thing that was diff...

82 F150 Parasitic Draw Electrical Question

So I am restoring an 82 F150 with the I300, and struggling to get it running. It is bone stock right now, but the I300 in it is not the original motor. It will run if you give it throttle, but it will not idle. It has the feedback carb, and the distributor with the module mounted directly to the sid...
