I am having a problem with "low spark" on my 427 cu. in.(300hp) engines. My mechanic suggested converting to an electronic ignition. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
I am also going to replace both non submersible sump pumps. With the "deep vee" not all pumps will be appropriate. Any suggestions.
I have the original pump aft located between the fuel tanks. This is the same as the water pressure pumps, the inlet is a section of 3/4 copper tube with the end pinched closed, multiple holes drilled in the bottom and a slight bend to connect to a rubber hose going to the pump.
Electronic ignition is a good thing but I would not use the kits that install readily in your distributor.
I put electronic distributors in my 327's. I highly recommend this upgrade. I had Pertronix modules in the old distributors but i still had issues with the advance and finding distributor caps. The improvement in starting and keeping the engines synced is significant.
I also have the original pumps (look like Jabsco) and I would like to rebuild them .
I believe they have kits. Am I wasting my time? Thank you.
What Matt said. I have rebuilt one several times. Only loss is one which the bearing of the lift rod failed. I think it had been rebuilt 3 or 4 times and a new motor was installed several years ago. It was replaced with the original water pump, I added a newer style supply pump and a small surge tank for the water supply.
