Re: Ford Script Distributor Body

Update....the rotor gap was within recommended specs and it made no difference so I will stick with my non script distributor body. Appreciate all the help.

Re: Bending Overflow Tube

Re: Distributor Lubrication

Is 3 in 1 oil ok to use? For the distributor cam, would Napa Sil Glyde be ok to use as well? Thanks.

Re: Running Poorly

I have been adding 4 oz to the fuel during fill ups and was going to ask the best way to add for the valves and appreciate your guidance. Question- how many ozs per cylinder?
