    Pertronix ignition and electronic fuel pump?

    When I still had the stock 4 cylinder, I replaced the points and coil with a Pertronix setup in my Series V. It was notably more reliable with the Pertronix, however I can't say that it was a great performer because everything else was worn out at the time. All in all I feel that it was very...

    2.8 roller rockers, forged pistons

    If you look really close at the photo, they aren't even installed. There is no obvious way the plate could be bolted to the head because the plate doesn't have holes where the towers are located in a stock setup. In addition, the push rods aren't in place... they are off to one side. He he...
