Hey Guys,

yesterday i've recieved some parts to upgrade my charger a little bit for upcoming spring and summer.
The goal is to make the car a bit more reliable.
It is restored back to original with breaker points ignition and voltage regulator on the firewall and i was never a big fan of that.
So time for this upgrade.
Many thanks to my Buddy Rick Gorski from Firecore. coolgleamA
He's got me covered with all the ignition components i need for this upgrade and it still looks like factory  2thumbs drool5


The upgrades wille be:

Firecore ignition/coil and wires
Powermaster 95 apm alternator
NGK spark plugs
High torque ministarter
A new Holley 750 DP carburator. ( there's a p.o.s.edelbrock on it now  eek)
Motoroil and filter
Original hoseclamps under the hood

I'll keep you guys posted on the progress! 2thumbs
I'm going to work on my charger when i have some spare time left in my shop  cheers

Good to see.  I always enjoy the chance to work on my car.  Looks like it is the same for you.  Have fun.  2thumbs  And then driving when the days grow longer.

Who in their right mind would say

"The science should not stand in the way of this."? 

Science is just observation and hypothesis.  Policy stands in the way.........

Or maybe it protects us. 

I suppose it depends on the specific case.....

Do you have a stock wiring harness in you car? If you do it will not handle a 95 amp alternator.

Check with others. The "one wire" just goes to the battery so things change. (I think you loose the Alternator gauge.)

But thanks for the heads up i appreciate that! 2thumbs 2thumbs
