Re: Engine Temperature spike

Had same problem a few years back... turned out sucking air at the strainer. Was ok at idle then loss of flow at higher rpms.

Re: 318 ignition system

When I installed the test Pertronix units in 2012 we used the collar that was used on the OEM Prestolite on STB engine. No issues.

I had heard there was an early issue with the collar supplied with new units from Pertronix but it was corrected. Must have got one that was early.
