you should get the right eccentric

I dont know what my car was fe or sd idk. But owner before me converted it to carb. Had motor pulled and bored 30over and got gt40 cast heads ported n polished then got edelbrock cam n lifter set rpm manifold and 600cfm electric choke carb. Has msb cap rotor but stock dist. It still has o2's in it but idk if they are disconnected. I do know it takes a wile to crank over ... i have to feather the crap out of the throttle sometimes to get her going. What could that be? Also speedo dont work but everything else does. All the efi crap is still on firewall. Can i do away with all that? Also there is a diphram thing with a hose nipple comming off under dist. Can that be removed? Winter time its getting alum heads new holley carb long tubes new exhaust and mabye an 8.8.... is the msd dist worth it? I have msd cap n rotor plug wires e3 plugs msd blaster coil.

I did it on the cheap with An 85 in tanke fuel pump, 85 throttle cable and csr throttle bracket. I cut every wire from my pcm. Rewired the fuel pump to a switch by the shifter with a fuse and relay. It seems to run well with my 650 Holley mechanical secondary carb and pro billet distributor with the lightest springs and a 6al box.

Hi all! I am new to this forum but have loved all the useful information here. I am building a 69 mustang coupe with a 393 stroker and an headed for a semi restomod interior. I am currently looking into fuel system options and have decided to go EFI. I plan on sitting about 500 hp NA but might procharge in the future. What fuel system should I use? I would like to use my hp tablet that runs android software for tuning and will permanatly intigrate it into the cars dash. I also would like to be able to add water methanol soon down the road. maybe in place of of forced induction. Any ideas? Thanks for any help! I plan on being 650hp with watermethanol or forced induction down the road and would like this system to be fairly easly adapted to either to keep my options open. sorry for hyjacking this post, I couldnt find out how to start a new one:/

Default iam in the same boat

i just ditched the 4 banger out of mine and put in a 302 and carbd it. i got a donor car and completely swapped everything from the v8 into mine. it is a big project but definitely doable. i used a new high rise intake and pro form 650 carb. no clearance issue with the hood. my engine was out of a truck. i got it machined 30 over. and put new evrything into it except the block and rods. i got flat top pistons in mine and have no issue with valve clearances. you should be fine.

on a separate note i am having a hard time finding the tach input wire to hook up to the green wire on my distributor. anybody know where to find it?
