That sounds terrible! My skin has now started to peel and fall off. A couple of spots the skin has ubfortunately been ripped off and is quite painful but nothing that will keep me down.

Wow! Hopefully you will recover fast! That looks and, i am sure that is painful

I have had serious sunburns before but they where merely painful for a day or so...I can't imagine 2nd/3rd degree burns.

Do you think I should get an electronic distributor or get an electronic pickup like comp cams for my stock distributor? I'm looking at a mechanical advance mallory dual point right now.

You currently have a points set up if I remember correctly if not please correct me, your options are 1. Pertronics upgrade which is cost effective and easy. 2. Get a Ford duraspark distributor as per Scotty's website and set it up the way you need it to be, or just call and order one from him curved to your application , still very cost effective but a bit more. 3. Get an MSD or Mallory depending on what you want, which I think for you is over kill and money spent that is not needed to be spent.

You can still upgrade to an MSD Control box if you want and use all 3 options.

I'm buying a shift kit for my freshly rebuilt c6. Thinking of going with TRANSGO STAGE 2. Is this a good choice? From what I've read transgo is the best. And the stage 2 will sweet up those pretty little shifts of mine. Is there a good place to get it from? I think oregon performance is the cheapest.

When it comes to the mechanical distributor I don't know anything about them, so I can't help you but the pertronics served me well till I got a distributor from Scotty.

I used a B&M shift kit the first time and was pleased with it and then when I overhauled my old C6 I installed an SK-6 kit which was good as well, as far which kit you pic it really doesn't matter as your not racing if the transgo is good, then order one up. Oregon performance is priced good, I believe they are on ebay as well.

Yeah my last engine was my 390 and had a stock distributor with a crane cam xr1 electronic pickup and was pleased with it. The mallory is still points which I'm trying to do away with. But as far as shift kit goes I've heard good things about the transgo so think I'm gonna go with that when I get back and get those tires chirping. It shifts good just not as firm as I want it to.

Ok so I got the overheating thing fixed. Put a mechanical fan on it and voila. Now I want to take the carb apart and see what jets and squirter are in there currently. Whats size primary and secondary jets should I have for a stock 429 with a 750 holley? What power valve? What accelerater size? Also I'm running 13* intinial timing with 26* or mechanical advamce so 39* total all in by 2700. Is this too much total? Initial? I haven't heard any pinging at all on this motor yet.

What I would do is worry about the full advance setting so if its 39* set it there and just let initial fall where it falls, there is nothing wrong with 13 mine is 15ish.

So 39* total is not too much?

I think you would want to be closer to 36 max with iron heads. What slots are available in your distributor? 13 & 15? Even if you were 36 all in you would be 10 initial, I'm sure it would be fine mine was 8 before and had no issue. How does it run at 10 initial?

Yeah that's what I thought. I have a 13L & 18L. It was on the 18 and I had 50* of advance. Even then I didn't hear any pinging. I'm baffled by that. I run 93 in it with lead additive. I had it at 10* before and it ran good so I bumped it up to 13* to see what it would do. Was also trying to figure out overheating problem then. I'm about to tear into the carb and see what jets are in there. Its powerful but feels rich even at 3/4 turn of idle mixture screws.

I would bump it back to 10 so that you are at 36 all in and leave it there.

Sounds like you are getting her dialed right in, sweet. Any car shows lately?
