electronic dizzy settings 140 pg HELP
Posted by: upnorth1 ()
Date: April 20, 2017 08:03PM

I have a 140 PG and want to put an electronic dizzy in. Honestly I didnt purchase it from Seth, thats why I dont feel right asking him. But I did pay way bunch less on clearance, thats why I bought it, factory sealed new and unused.

I have learned that I need to use the lightest springs on it, but are there any other changes which would help it. which thickness sleeve should I use?

what mods are needed to use a regular dist.cap? I'm not going to race,but would like as good mildly hot runner.

Thanks for the help!

Bob we need to know who made your Distributor and what model is it?

If it is a Performance Corvair "Stinger" unit... ask Seth... he's been paid for it...

Springs determine how fast the distributor mechanically advances.

The Bushing are for limiting the Total Advance...


You can do this with a "Dialback timing light" and a 0-4000 rpm tach.
