Desperate for help with my electrical/ignition issues....
Look up my username and you will see how many posts I have on these forums about the electrical/ignition issue on my '76 F-250 390. I tried to fix this issue for two months and then I had the shop that put my new motor in look at the truck for the past two and a half weeks and they couldn't fix it either. I just got a call from them and they are throwing in the towel. I have now spent over $4000 in the motor and all new accessories and I have driven the truck a total of 100 miles since I purchased it last fall. I'm now desperate and am pleading to the Colorado guys. Does anyone know a shop that knows the Duraspark system well and could help me out? Any options that anyone knows of that I could possibly use? PLEASE help me. Thank you.
If you live in Colorado Springs give Otto's Automotive a call and ask them. Butch is the owner and is a good fella. He and his mechanics have been there for years and probably remember these old trucks.
Hey Nate. I know little about the DuraSpark but let me share my ignition history... I too just dropped a hot 390 into my 65 F100. I grabbed a DuraSpark distributor and coil out of the bone yard. Instead of using the DSII box, I went with the GM HEI module and wired it in. So far, I too have about 100 miles on the truck (around the neighbor hood a few times..) and have not had problem uno. If you want to give it a try, I can dig up the thread from here.
