    Wow! Nice work champ!

    Rest assured, we have a backup of Farrar's car blog and it will be restored in the near future. (Steve Rice - March 2016)

Behind the seat he has an aftermarket Duraspark ignition module. Distributor is made by Motorcraft (AMC/Jeep application). Only part of his ignition that isn't Ford are the spark plugs themselves -- he had a brand new set of NKG's so I reused them. Ford part number would be Autolite 103.

    Good choice on the 1.5 ohm coil. I'm running a 1.5 ohm Flame Thrower without any resistors.

    Late afternoon pic of the final installation. Except for the freeze plugs -- and total lack of an exhaust system -- this part of the project should be finished. Also need to attach the A/C hoses and vacuum/charge the system (still waiting on compressor spacers and a hold down bolt from McMaster).

    Mmmm...that's a nice, long crankcase breather hose you got there. How about a set of zoomies for Farrar's exhaust?

    I'm interested to see the completed exhaust, I recall Farrar had a nice setup planned.

    Farrar has an exhaust system!

    Test running his new engine is much more pleasant now.

    What model muffler are those, and how do they sound?

    Very creative. I like the idea.

    Rather than replacing the freeze plugs, why don't I just send Farrar home with a couple extra jugs of antifreeze?
