521 hot spark dizzy swap

Recommended Posts

Hey I just did a dizzy swap to get rid of my dual point distributor I bought the hot spark dizzy with the coil for 130$.It was a easy swap only 2 wires to reconnect and a slight mod to the timing plate . It already runs much smoother now and I haven’t even put a timing light on if yet

Use without the ballast or use your 1.5 coil with the 1.5 ballast. So this answers if the spark is stronger or not. The 'hot' spark only gets rid of the points. A major upgrade in itself.

Changing is a pain, we used to file them down too but then they have to be set correctly. As they wear down the timing changes toward retarded as the gap opens. They will probably last  forever as there are no moving parts on it.
