Re: Petronix ignition question

I also use the Pertronix with Packard 440 wire. My 39 is still going after 29 years & the 32 more than 11.
Just lucky, I guess. I'm too lazy to change them now

Re: 6V electric fuel pump suggestions

I agree with JSeery
Use of a relay is smart & takes the load off the ignition switch, if you are using it to turn on the pump.
Seems like I remember a pump made by "Autopulse" when we were kids

The most accurate depiction of the Pearl Harbor attack is very well done in the movie:

Re: 56 Merc 2 4s

Thanks K
After looking at the differences in Carb spacing, I can see the advantage, but to my eyes, doesn't seem that it would make that much difference.
Thanks again for the info
