an EFI distributor can still ne used in a carb application, the only thing you reallly have to do is eliminate the wiring for the fuel injectors, and add a carb instead..

leave the ECT and ACT installed

You need the 85 5spd dizzy, NOT the one for an automatic. Auto cars still have the flat tappet cam and the dizzy comes with an iron gear. It wont last long.

This will help if you havent found it already

Adder does't it need a tps signal to properly determine "engine load" for timing advance during acceleration?

thanks

I believe that the TPS is more of a factor in the 94-95 ECM, not the fox ECMs
