In life, they say that timing is everything. It’s certainly great for making balls of fire shoot forth from a carburetor sitting atop a 352 cubic inch V8 engine.
Why are we messing with the timing? Well, that’s because we are installing a new electronic ignition into the HoonTruck. I opted to swap points for the Pertronix Ignitor II ignition. I also purchased the hotter coil that goes with it.
My father-in-law and I installed this system, and it actually works pretty well on my truck. We were going to fix the brakes while we were under there but I found that I need a new metering valve.
Since we couldn’t do the brakes, we turned to the side mirrors. I ordered a set of 5″ round mirrors from LMC Truck to replace the single driver’s side mirror that the pickup came wearing. I’m not sure how I feel about them yet, but it is nice to have *some* visibility on that passenger side. Thumbs up for symmetry?
