Default Re: Project Karma

Couple updates on the build:

btw you should notice that all of my pictures from here on out are much better.

finished installing the other front seat. Seating position using the stock seat bases is perfect for me. I really like how they turned out.

Also needed to install a pertronix that I've had sitting around for awhile due to the prestolite module going bad on me. Not sure why I didn't install this when I had the distributor out for paint. The install for the pertronix is pretty straight forward. Also picked up a new vac advance from IH only. Old vac advance was shot.

The distributor should be in great shape now. End play was measured at .038. Sensor to trigger gap was set to .008.

Original module

I was planning on running the wires underneath the base plate but reconsidered once the vac advance went in. They May or May not have been in the way. I decided not to take the chance.
