460 wiring, module, etc.

Here is the predicament Im in. I have a 460 out of my old truck, mid 80's. The style that had an ignition module on the fender. Anyways, the engine bay was torn apart for another rig a few years back, so it was all cut out.

I want to wire this 460 into a new project. Does HEI or anyone make an aftermarket module, or do I have to stick with that stock one. I went through a few of those wheeling back in the day.

Also, does anyone have a link or can inform me on how to wire that module.The distributer has 3 wires, again I need basically everything. Diagram or info would be great...

Thanks, Chad.

Your original dist will run a MSD 6A aftermarket ignition. Here's a diagram if you want to run the original Ford duraspark module.

Yes, we make performance modules(and coils) for the Duraspark system-see:

http://www.performancedistributors.c...dduraspark.htm

If you decide to get a new distributor, consider our custom curved Duraspark Distributor built with our new Full Length Oil Impregnated Bronze Bushing. The full length bushing improves timing stability and spark scatter. If stock appearance is not an issue, take a look at our one piece D.U.I. Distributor. Whether you choose the Duraspark or the D.U.I., we curve each on a distributor machine based on your engine combination. Please see them at:

http://performancedistributors.com/forddistributors.htm

Also, there is now an excellent installation article on the D.U.I. Distributor on the Ford-Trucks.com site at:

http://www.ford-trucks.com/article/idx/0/358/article/DUI_Ignition_Installation_In_A_Ford_351W_V8.html

Ignition Lesson of the Month: Hystereses, the difference between the timing as the rpm and vacuum increases to the timing as rpm and vacuum decrease, needs to be kept to a minimum. A precise advance curve accomplishes this.

You need a momentary switch running to the "s" terminal of the solenoid to make it crank, and you need a switch to the coil + and to the ignition module to make the spark. You may need a resistor to the coil depending on what ignition you are running.
