Well, I finally got my ignition tuned up. Thanks to some folks here, (big thanks!) I was able to piece together the "Juicebox" or TR upgrade. I must say the old 258 runs considerably better. Before, the engine would smoke and sputter, and die at idle. When the engine is warm, however, I'm still having a problem with the idle, but it's much less pronounced now and a light foot to the gas pedal fires it right up when before it would stall. Hopefully the Weber install and vacuum line removal will eliminate this.
FYI, I'm using the Blaster 2 coil instead of the TFI. (anyone else have one of these?) I'm planning on upgrading to the MSD system soon. I figured if I'm going to go through the trouble of drilling holes in my fender, might as well upgrade the whole system. Also, for anyone upgrading, I'd recommend picking up Bosch spark plug wires. They include coil wires for both a can style and the TFI coil.
