350 Parts Advice

Postby Pratty » Tue Oct 04, 2016 12:25 pm

Hi all, just looking for some advice on parts for my zz4 350. It's a long block crate, however the previous owner put a low-rise Edelbrock 2101 intake on it and put back the original 43yr old dizzy. I want to eventually do the whole top end, but for now I'm just looking to replace these two before summer (I don't want to miss driving another summer due to a massive project :evil: ).

For the dizzy I'm looking at an MSD-8572 along with a 6AL ignition module
For the intake something like an edelbrock air gap or a dual plane AFR Titon - they'll fit in my 73 with an LT-1 drop base cleaner, which I have.

Then I'm on the fence about putting my 750 holley back on or tuning the quick fuel 600 I'm currently running.

Additionally I've been looking at a hydroboost brake booster, does anyone have experience with them? Any idea if they would need mod approval in WA?

Cheers guys

Yeah Leroy has a hydroboost in his 73 , was in it when he got it and had to get it signed off to finish the initial rego. But do you really need it ? your cam isn't that big ?

I have a hydroboost unit here if you want to look at one .

the 8572 is that the one with the tach drive ?

I do plan to put a bigger cam in later, still not sure if I'll ever 'need' one; just curious about them really, seems more reliable to me to hydraulically power the booster.

Yeah the dizzy has a mechanical tach drive and vacuum advance, shouldn't have to do much more than drop it in and wire up the ignition module.

I had to set the centrifugal weights and set the timing on mine , all in at ......buggered if I can remember now :: they came with good instructions and some different sized weights or different tension springs from memory. pretty easy to do , I think I have a good timing light around here if you need to borrow one. :o

You will also have to by pass the ignition voltage drop resistor wire which is in the wiring loom between the dissy & firewall plug

Thanks Bazz. Sir, do you mean the pink and black wire to the ignition coil?
