Please take some pictures and we'll let you know.

BTW, Crane has some electronic igition systems with LED triggers. They have 4, 6 and 8 cyl shutter wheels to drive the LED triggers and the ignition system.

The ultimate would be to use the FORD EDIS system with a crank driven trigger wheel and Megajolt to drive the EDIS module. No points, no distributor and 50KV ignition.

Not part of the in-crowd since 1952. It's BRAKES not breaks. You break a bone, use brakes to stop your car. /rant
