I've been reading over the different instructions for this. Some say replace the distributer but some don't. Is a new distributer part of the upgrade? I also noticed there are different things to upgrade. What would give me the best results?
Thanks for the help.
You need the following:
These are for a 82 ford half-ton with a 300 straight six engine.
1. Distributer cap
The larger cap and rotor with eliminate crossfire from the TFI coil you will need. It makes this upgrade really shine.
You need to get a coil from an 86 ford halfton with a v-8. Those are all the parts you will need. Hope this helps.
Well, hold on now. Depending on what year Jeep you have, and what ignition it has, you may need to replace the distributor. If you're Jeep currently has a Motorcraft distributor, you will be fine and don't have to upgrade. However, if it is a Prestolite unit, replacement is necessary. Don't quote me on this, but I believe starting in 1978, Jeep started using the Motorcraft ignition system.
