If you have a 302, only a 302 dist will work. 351's are all different. Numbers on the block won't matter. The main thing to know is what cam you have; roller or flat tappet. It will make a difference...

Based on what I see there, you've got a dist from a 1993 fully computer controlled engine, and it's is not designed to work as a stand-alone unit. There's nothing you can add short of a complete...

The VIN is exposed in this pic, on the left frame rail in front of your suspension hat. Since it starts with 87HY, that chassis originally housed a flat 6 engine. There's a tag on your firewall that...

The thing to keep in mind is that when you break the capsule and mix the hardener with the primer, the pot life is minimal (check label instructions), so you'll need to use the whole can at once. If...

Step up and get a small 110 unit that uses gas. Don't waste your time with the flux stuff. The weld quality will be inferior, and as a novice you'll be more frustrated with it than learning to do it...

Contrary to popular belief, clear coat is anti-patina. By definition, "patina" is what you get from the natural process of oxidation over time, be it metal, paint, etc. You can't coat it to "save"...
