Roy did you have to bring that thread back up again:aargh4:Mine was mounted on the radiator support but I had to move it due to the heat from the radiator and, I guess, the engine. It would run great until it got real hot during the summer months and would start missing. At one point, I had a "vapor lock" which had nothing to do with the Crane Ignition. After going through everything and scratching a bald spot on my head, I asked around and came to the conclusion that heat was bothering the ignition "box". I moved the "box" to the fender area and put some spacers underneath so air would circulate around it to help keep it cool. I haven't had a problem with it since and runs great!
I always used .045" with my Jacob's ignitions.OK, but what gap should Dale and us others who have similiar engine mods be setting our spark plugs to? Please.
The ignition rotor? I was still using normal resistor rotors back then.Did you notice a weak link with the solid rotor?
I've had those things blow holes and short out to the shaft.
A good trick, at least on a dyno, was to start at a large gap. If it starts hard, or misfires at higher rpms, start closing up the gap until the problem goes away.Thanks. I'll start with a 0.040, then move to 0.045 on mine to see how it feels.
