Ok. I can do that.

Thanks everyone!!!

Is it ok to ground it out on the engine block?


Best place to do it, just make sure you have a good ground

So, the motor has very good spark. I just needed to stick a self tapping screw in the ignition to get it to the "run" position.

There are two different companies that now sell aftermarket replacements for the SSI ignition system on the Tecky HH engines. I can't find my link to one of them that I had saved but here is  the link to the other one. http://overnight-sol...s.com/index.htm

On another note the last time I checked the new replacements were less than what people want out of 40-50 year old used units.

If it has spark, it should run... Assuming no block, valve or compression issues

It felt like it had good compression... My face was a good 18" away and gave my hair a good blow.

Screw it, I think I may as well keep the motor... Just need to get the right hand running board and new tires/rims.

Any idea why they parked it?

If it developed issues, you can always do a repower then.

There is actually more than that.

 

*Dale at Overnight Solutions sell a "direct swap" system which somewhat maintains current setup.

http://overnight-sol...s.com/index.htm

*Ed Stoller is considered the pioneer of developing a system which converts it to a battery -coil setup. He doesn't sell a complete kit, but has a friend who sells them. He as also recently worked on a kit using a GM 4 prong HEI module, ABS brake sensor, and a coil.

*Brain miller also has various solutions on his website using the Chrysler control box, Ford box ,and also the GM module.

I was told they just stopped using it... Parked and forgot was the story.

I asked the po, waiting for a reply now... Will pay further results
