Re: Powerspark

As with other triggered systems make sure to use the correct ohm rated coil and recommended plug leads. It makes an apparently huge difference to voltages supplied and random failures per previous Pertronix threads.

Re: SP250 Boot Hinges Gasket

A "stubby" 3/8 in. drive ratchet, a short extension, a deep well socket, and a universal joint come in very handy here. (disconnect bat.)

After checking through your recent flasher install for proper location in the circuitry, correct voltage sources and groundings and still having these dips and spikes: For powered meter or gauge fluxuations not associated with groundings I would think one or more circuits (check the fan relay source...

Re: Ceramic Coating Exhaust Manifolds

I had both done. First the ceramic coating ( usually applied to pistons, not the shiny powder coat type ) was applied on my stainless steel headers and little or no actual compartment heat reduction noted.
