My hot spark is in a box somewhere! we moved about 6 months ago and i still haven't found it!
SO mike, are you saying the vacuum retard diaphragm will not be needed when i finally do find the hot spark and toss the points? I (naively) thought the retard/advance is still in effect with points or with electronic ignition. no?
I'd be happy to hear that. in that, any thing to get more variables like diaphragms / vacuums / points wearing down out and get perfect timing with fewer wear parts, the better. (i know points can be maintained and timed perfectly too, but still).
To recap: are you saying once i drop electronic ignition in, i won't need that diaphragm anyway?
