    Hey guys, I have a bit of an electrical problem going on. I have a 68 mustang, and it's been in the garage for the winter. I went to start it the other day and it will crank over but it wouldn't start. So I did the basics, and wasn't getting any spark to the plugs. So I have a ton of new parts...

    Dear all, after several researches, I reached the point to re-draw by my own the diagram for ALTERNATOR - BATTERY- VOLTAGE REGULATOR - COIL - DISTRIBUTOR connections. I kindly ask you to check it and comment if you think it is wrong. The mess for me comes up because I bought the PROCOMP Serie...

    Hey guys, I just finished putting my 5.0 back together (no new parts, just fixing leaks) and it cranks but doesn't start. When I started the crank/no start checklist, I would get a faint spark at the coil wire but not anymore. Now there's nothing at the coil. I have an msd 6btm with a...

    I have a 2006 4.0L V6 automatic and I am looking at coils wires and spark plugs. Are the performance gains worth the extra money between $35 Taylor Street Thunder 8mm Spark Plug Wires and $110 Performance Distributors Livewires 10mm Spark Plug wires? Are the performance gains worth the extra...

    Ford Mustang v6 3.8L 2002 I was told at the shop that my wires and plugs needed to be changed (again – 3rd time in 3 years) as well as the coil. I couldn’t afford to have the work done at the shop, so I purchased items online at AmericanMuscle.com. · MSD Super Conductor 8.5mm Spark Plug...

    I have a 200 l6, I was thinking about putting in the pertronix ignition and flamethrower coil, but is it really worth it, and if so is it easy to install?

    Hey guys, 1966 coupe 289 v8. I'm installing a new distributor and have two questions about the ignition wire going to the coil: 1. If the wire was ballasted, and I turned the key to "on" (not cranking it) would it read 12V or ~7V? 2. If mine is actually ballasted, can I just bypass this...

    Hello, this is my first post on AFM's. I have a 1991 mustang LX 2.3 and I have put a 2.3 turbo engine in it. We had it fired up the other day but as the RPM's increased it started to stumble and badly fall apart. Now we have that problem fixed (or so we hope) but what I believe is the IRCM...

    Hi guys, I have a 1966 coupe with a 289 v8 and c4 transmission. It's originally a California car, so it had all the thermactor emissions equipment on it. With the emissions system models, the ignition coil is bolted onto the top of the intake manifold, which is where mine currently is. But...
