good news; the suspension changes really helped, got a new carb...Carter 2bl from '69 Fury vintage, runs great ! At least it dii for a while, took it out for a test run today and to show off how good it was , Shut it down about 6 miles from home, wouldn't restart, had to tow it home. No spark ! I got the ECU modual and breakerless dist from a '72 Ply vintage, changed control unit, coil, still no spark. I heard now the the pickup unit in the dist goes bad ! Can't get a new dist til Fri (lifetime warrenty).............has to be at a car show Sat !!!! So, is it really worth it to use this electronic ignition stuff ????????? I'm thinking if I had regular points in it, it would be on the road already !!!!!!!!!not too happy right now, thinking of ripping it out, putting in the old stuff.................any suggestions ????/
