Fitech fuel injection

There will be no particular order to this I will just type in as I thinks of things.I ordered a 600hp setup thinking I was going to use the available timing control with that model that wasn't available with the 400hp model. We can not use timing control with pertronix ignitions. You need an aftermarket distributor, such as a MSD, that has the proper pickup to work with the Fitech's system. As…See More

1964 caddy carburetor gaskets

Posted by joe duran on September 24, 2017 at 1:36pm 1 Comment

_I suspect the current installed gaskets are either the wrong gaskets, installed improperly or are missing a metal shim according to a few diagrams. Would anyone know the correct part #'s or their replacements? It is the original Carter carb. Thanks in advance. Joe
