its the autozone one :/ it was like $180 but it will not let me get above 5,000 what do you think the 454 should put out?
its an original motor as far as i know when i got the car the motor didnt run i put this ignition in before i got it running. the problem happens in all of the gears it just cuts out and its very dramaitic
well it was a 396 in it but the guy i bought it from stuck the 454 in it. me and my neighbor put in a painless wiring harness in Im not sure what year the 454 is i got the the numbers off the block if that would help
So if i posted the numbers up here could someone tell me what year it is? and.... I got the car at the interior shop and the motor is pulled so i wont be able to test it for a while but that is the first thing ill do... i got a fluke 88 multimeter so ill check for power at the distributor when i get it all back together.. And i got the regular wiring harness for the 69 chevelle from painless Maybe ill just set up the original iginiton system and see what happens? Thanks Jake
