    Distributor Wire Harness from Coil/Igniter - Question on Lengthening

    Quick question on my '76 FJ40 ignition upgrade - I installed the FJ60 coil and igniter in the same location as the FJ40 parts and figured out/reconnected all of the wiring except for the two wires to the distributor. The wires are about 6 inches too short. Is there anything special about these...

    Vacuum Advance... Rebuild.

    So after finding that the new used vac advance I just bought was in fact blown (not the sellers fault... his dad and brother didn't know to check it with a vac gauge) I started doing some research online. I found this cool youtube video of a guy rebuilding a vac adv from a 1928 Lanchester LD10...

    I saw this on Ebay and wondered if anyone knew anything about it? I got if for my daughters FJ60 and when we received it,...the unit is much smaller than the original. Is it still going to work or what?...came in Toyota Box, similar, just smaller. Also, no mounting collar on it. I thought it...

    Distributor Question

    Now bear with me as I havent run through any diagnostic tests yet cause I'm at work today. Changed the oil last night and upgraded my filter from the sh**ty FRAM to a Mobil 1 filter due to low oil pressure reading on guage. Had everything buttoned up and was giving the filter a last hand tighten...

    No vacuum at the distributor

    I decided that 1200 rpm for idle was stupid. I knew it was fast, but now know it was 1200 because I finally attached a newly bought fancy-dancy timing light that had an RPM indicator. I also learned it was running at 27 degrees advance. I dialed down the advance by twisting the distributor...

    For Sale  HEI Distributor - Calif.

    I recently switched over to a stock disti with Pertronix so I don't have a need for this distributor. It needs a gasket (doesn't use an o-ring). It worked fine but oil did work its way up the shaft. I dont think I had the right gasket and it probably could have been clamped down better. It...

    Good morning folks. I have to swap out my roached distributor base. I have never swapped out a distributor base and would like to do it right the first time.

    Anybody ever heard of these? I know about having JimC or someone else on the club recurve your dizzy if you desmog, but haven't heard of an actual *upgrade* that would produce better spark.
