Re: Prestolite or not? how do i know

my 77CJ5 304 had a prestolite. that prob doesnt help much tho

if teh distributer says "motorcraft" on it, then its NOT a prestolite

the prestolite also has that strange gold box on teh passenger side fender if I recall, and the duraspark has a silver box with fins on the drivers fender, that most likely says "motorcraft" "amc" or "wells"

if you do a search for duraspark, or ignition uprgrade, youll get lots of pictures and info
