I am putting a rebuilt 360 in my truck. I remember reading somewhere here that there is the possibility of too hot a condencer/or coil or something on these motors. The end result was a smoked ingnition wire in the wiring harness. Any thoughts are always appreciated.
make sure u find some skamatics before you do any wireing i know a guy who smoked his whole harness becouse he wired it wronge.. make sure its right before you hook up the battery..
But thats the only one I've heard of doing that..
Ford used a resistor wire instead of a balast resistor on some trucks. I'm not sure what years, but you can check by testing the volts to the coil.
A better idea is to scrap the whole thing and get the Pertronix upgrade. I got the matching coil to eliminate any problems and have no balast resistor, then just follow the simple instructions. Dump the points (or keep them as a backup) and get better performance with the $60 Pertronix kit.
