Without advance. It's just a plain 2 wire points distributor. My grandfather has a timing light. I'll try and do it the right way to make sure I don't exceed the 16 BTDC. Thanks for the help GLC.

Hmm - without vacuum advance, what does it have? Mechanical advance only or is there some computer control involved?

As far as I know there isn't anything,..unless it's mechanical and built in to the distributor. The only wiring is a black and a purple that go to the ignition coil.

Well,...I've been fighting with the high pressure pump in the tank over fueling through the regulator after driving it for a while. I'm over it. Picked up a fuel tank and sending unit for a 1984 F150. Also grabbed a roll of 3/8" fuel line. Gonna just go with the old school mechanical pump on the motor.

Got the old tank drained and dropped last night. New tank and sending unit are installed. Tonight I'll demo the old fuel lines and the regulator. Finish running new fuel line to the mechanical pump. Still need to go through my wiring diagram to see which wire is the fuel gauge. Should be running like a champ this evening.

Yes sir I did. I had to change the carb out. The Holley 600 marine carb was giving me the high idle issues. When it was warm, the throttle wouldn't return all the way, even with 3 springs. I put a Holley 750 double pumper on it that my grandfather had laying around. Runs like a champ now. I use it whenever I'm not at work. I wired up the new sending unit in the new tank. I think the 84 sending unit works backwards from the 91. When I filled the tank, it went all the way to E on the gauge. I'll just have to remember "E" means "Enough" and "F" means "Find a gas station".

I didn't change them around because one of the 2 studs on the sending unit is a ground. Maybe I should try it though. Worst it can do is not work.

E to F will work, if indeed it does
