Re: NASCAR 1957 Ford

FWIW. There were aftermarket breaker plates you could buy that converted your 57 distributor to dual points. Had one in my 57 until I switch it all to DuraSpark.

Re: Brake lights swapping when signaling - 61 Galaxie

Yes that's it. Not a hard job to replace. Mine wouldn't sit completely flat, I had to grind a small bump in the the housing first.

Re: Autolite 1100 replacement for 1964 170 I6
