Re: [DML] Contemplating a Carb Swap

I am surprised Bill.  You are Mister FORD!  

Google Ford load-o-matic distributor, and you can learn all about it..  Bottom line is, the distributor will need to be swapped if I am not using the matched carburetor for load-o-matic.

I have been running  Pertronix's Ignitor breakerless ignition for a very long time now, and it has no impact on the load-o-matic timing adjustments.

Why in the world would you change the distributor for a carb swap? The distributor isn't even on the same side of the engine! That's just silly, unless you want to upgrade to a Duraspark distributor at the same time, which many 1960's Mustang owners do indeed do (Duraspark gives you longer discharge by virtue of its bigger diameter cap, and it's breakerless).

If you want to stick with your original distributor and are still running points, I recommend upgrading to Pertronix's Ignitor breakerless ignition. The module bolts inside the cap using the original points screws -- absolutely no modifications are necessary and it is invisible with the cap in place. Ignitor can handle HEI with ease. I'm running a 45,000 volt coil on my 1969 Lincoln engine off full charging voltage (.05" plug gaps).
