A few things should be considered when selecting the parts. The number assigned to the circuit as well as the label are indicated in the instruction book as well, so you'll never lose track of what wire goes where!. The material must be compatible with the camshaft. Pull the battery, positive battery cable, alternator, alternator to regulator wiring harness and the voltage regulator. When I had a question regarding the headlight switch the tech stayed on the line until I achieved what I was trying to accomplish.
The module receives its power through the red wire in the 2-pin connector. For example, you might not be able to fit the larger cap under a Monte Carlo bar in an early Mustang, for example. This ignition system offers the benefits of reduced maintenance, smoother engine operation with improved idle, better fuel economy, and reduced emissions. This circuit operates the alternator charging lamp indicator. Take off all the original alternator mount brackets and clean the area you will be working in.
These kits will support your entire electrical system from headlights to tail lights. For me the answer is simple, this project is in keeping with my philosophy of making my driven daily truck technologically new without sacrificing practical originality. The smaller 45 amp Delco alternator will fit easily on the upper location. At the junkyard, small blocks tend to all look alike. Let us know how things work out with this dilemma! This prevents crossfiring with the higher coil voltage. Posted by Chris on 16th May 2016 Bought the 14 circuit for my 1957 F100 so i have some room for expansion in the future and its been nothing but a good project. It is truly a high quality product backed up by their support center.
When you decide to try my recommendation later. This is one of the easiest harness to install, all the wires are marked and color coded. Soeaking if that maybe include a second set of labels so if little routing changes need to be done we can replace the label with a new one. When installing the new distributor, it is always a good idea to use a new O-ring. Get a metric nut to attach the ring connector to the battery post on the alternator. Most normal cast iron camshafts require a cast iron distributor gear.
Now I'm not the brightest star in the sky but this was a no-brainer. It has two 18 gage leads, a white one blue on the wiring diagram , with solder less crimp connector installed and a red lead about three inches long with a ring connector. Power is supplied to the coil in the same fashion as the older breaker point ignition. A 10 gage wire from the battery post terminal on the alternator to the positive battery cable side of the starter relay will also work. Also be sure to use the correct distributor drive gear.
The signal from this pickup is amplified by the control module to drive the ignition coil. The cap is made in two parts; the lower section is an adapter to fit the standard Ford V-8 distributor body. Loosen and remove accessory drive belts. Use wire ties and a flexible wire cover for the wires and harness you built. It has a temperature rating of -59°F -51°C to 257°F 125°C. Shown here on the firewall of my '72 Bronco. Use a keyed plug in connector for terminal one and two.
Measure alternator voltage output, across the battery posts. The instructions in the manual which came with the harness, led me through all the steps I needed to follow to rewire my truck. This wire is normally pink and is found under the dash. Ordered the harness and read through the easy as pie instruction and got stoked to get started. Gears in all combinations of size and material are available from Ford Motorsport.
Under some circumstances you may need to retain the old style smaller cap. Be sure to mount it somewhere away from heat sources. Use a bolt with metric thread to fasten the adjusting arm to the alternator and just for good measure put a nut on the end where it threads through the alternator. Yellow lead is not used. In most applications, the wire that used to power the coil can power the new coil.
This is most easily accomplished by making a trip to your favorite junkyard and rounding up all the parts. Now is a good time to grind off any cast flashing from the engine block near the timing chain cover and on the corner of the block below the exhaust manifold. This compound should also be applied to the tip of the distributor rotor. The control module doesn't like to get overheated. Doing this will provide a little extra movement of the alternator when you install the belt and it makes things neater. After talking with our associate Paster he turned me on to Kwik Wire. If your car has an idle positioner solenoid, the wire powering that may be used to power the module.
