ok guys would like your opinion thinking about removing the oil cooler on my 427 is this a pain in the butt to get sealed back up.  Took off the trans cooler off and it was almost 100 % blocked so I think I found my overheating problem.  Thinking I should do the same with the oil cooler. Thanks for the input as always 

                                                                                                                                   Thanks Tom

What parts do you need?
Hey Matt Dave now has my Distributors he was out for the holidays then got sick Thant’s for your help Tom
Highly recommend upgrading to the DUI distributors... I still have some crab caps from my old ones, along with two rebuilt distributors!
Just a word of caution on the DUI’s...not being USCG approved, an accident sets-up unknown results with an insurance company. I know people are having good results with them, and I even looked into them, but between the lack of CG cerification and these engines not being designed for that kind of power, making sure the stock ones are set-up correctly has proven successful.

Thanks for the clarification. I know others like the results but I was warned about the C.G. approval. I have 427 motors in my boat and wonder what  spare parts to keep on hand. What happens to the power of the engines when these dist. are installed?.

Tim Toth or Dick are the ones to speak to the technical impacts of those DUI’s. All I know is I saw enough to make me think twice throwing all that juice into the motors. Now that my original distributors are dialed in and working great, I don’t regret it. Just putting in the Pertronix units aren’t even enough. They need to be checked to make sure phasing is correct.

A good indicator of what’s going on inside is where the burn marks are on the contacts inside the cap. If it’s not dead center, that’s tells you a there’s a phasing issue.
Great information. Trying to order Caps and rotors. Rotors on backorder from Summit. The boat ran great with two months left in the season
