Re: Modern Ignition System Problem

40 years ago GM had the HEI modules.

Re: Modern Ignition System Problem

Most likely it is a BEAN COUNTER thing...

It might cost 25 cents more per unit to have the "burnout proof" feature built into the unit!

It all started in the early 90's when Colleges introduced...

Re: ignition

15 years ago I installed a brand new Lion III for a while.

Re: B block hole repair

Re: flywheel info

Yes there are two versions

1. The first was published in S.O.S.S magazine (as I remember) and has an error.
