    Back in May 2012 you had a post about the choke on Autolite 2bbl and the heat stove going to the choke with a picture of the stock manifold and a custom set up for your headers. Where did you get the custom set up for the headers? That engine looks great by the way. Thanks-Jason

    I sent you a private message if you wouldn't care to msg me back. My main concern is I have 2 more PVS that are both on the heater core hose into the manifold that are open to air.

    No worries Lariat. I was wondering where peak torque rpm for a stock efi 302 occurs. I'm trying to build one solely for mileage. I keep seeing that a car should be geared to cruise at 80% of peak torque rpm for the most potential mpg. Am I doing better explaining? And T56 is basically an updated, strong, 6spd version of the T5 manual from a fox body mustang. Also, love the avatar. Always makes me laugh, especially when you're quashing inane ideas like a CAI.

    Thanks, I had no idea I had that reputation! But I'm sorry to say that I don't quite understand what you are asking. And I don't even know what a T-56 tranny is. I am running a 5.0/302 with all FORD parts. My engine specs are in my signature. My torque output for my combo is 360 at 3500rpm, and I am running an AOD transmission that returns about 20 MPG when driven normally.

    Lariat, word in 80-96 world is you're the go-to guy for 302 advice. I'm currently planning to build an sefi 302 an 87 colony park for best DD efficiency. Looking at T-56 magnum trannies and trying to figure out the best gearing. I keep seeing 80% peak torque, but can't find a consensus on late 302 peak torque. You wouldn't have that stored in your sage wisdom, would you?

    Thanks

    To completely rebuild the Duraspark II ignition system, you will need a new distributor, ignition module, ignition coil, spark plugs, and spark plug wires. If the engine is modified, I would recommend a new distributor from Performance Distributors (Ford Duraspark), as they can re-curve the distributor to suit your engine specs. If the engine is stock, get a stock replacement distrubtor from NAPA or CarQuest; their parts tend to be better than other parts stores. For everything else, make sure to use genuine MOTORCRAFT parts, as they are of much better quality than anything aftermarket. RockAuto Auto Parts still carries a lot of replacement Motorcraft parts. As long as your wiring is still in good shape, and you are not going to be over 5,000 RPMs, a properly functioning Duraspark II ignition will beat anything else out there, INCLUDING the GM HEI. Good luck!

    Read your post on the Duraspark II ignition system and I'm glad I did. I just need your advice on rebuilding my (1977 F150 Ranger XLT 2WD 400cid) ignition system which has been sitting out in the elements for about several years. I got the truck from my Grandfather and would like as much info in the my attempt to do a full restorations. A parts list would be great I'm a former chevy convert. lol.
