Just wanted to check? Okay can you put a dist in a mopar 360 degrees out and have a no start ? 

 

Answer You dam skippy! Dead ex brother in law did it no joke! Like to drove me GAGA.

 

Now I'm wondering if a 94 351w can be 180 out and run sorta. With all the new fangled computer stuff,owned a lean burn dodge that never should have run but did because of computer compensation.

 

Hey seabronc EFI is the world's worst carb spread over a half acre and Waaaaaaaaaay to complicated  

​see Holley's system works too! Ain't that thing sweeet. 

Whoabegone.

I agree with you, always preferred carbed engines. :)

Let me throw fuel (no pun) on the fire......EFI is and has proven to be far superior to carburation. It is the greatest reason for the current era of engines that easily surpass the 1-HP per CU. Inch ratio while getting superior mileage.  Even old mechanical FI was one of the biggest reasons the old Mercedes Racers had the HP edge over all competitors.

Fuel injection is actually far simpler than any carb with fewer components.

 

Just saying......

Maybe so, but I have never had a carbed engine fail to run or fail to pass inspection because of a bad sensor, poor computer connection or failed computer  :((  .  Unfortunately this forum is filled with that type of problem  :huh: . So I still love carbed engines. :D

 

The more electronics you have the more expensive failures you have.

I agree with the EFI comment.  They are a real PITA, and difficult to maintain by the average truck owner.  I ripped all my EFI out of my 351, and replaced with a Holley 600 cfm, and a carb cam.  Now I have a fuel system that I can work on myself in the field.  Worked great ever since.

I should not be the guy to talk, being tech intolerant...however having had to work on my Mercedes and needing to learn some  of the systems, I find that once learned it is actually easier to diagnose EFI issues.  I will admit you need the right tools and patience to go through the procedures. EFI is just a pressurized loop of gas with injectors squirting fuel into each cylinder, managed by a computer...simple! 

Maybe getting older I am more ok sitting with a drink and my laptop and scantool and testing voltages and resistance rather than busting my knuckles. I do get enough of that on my son's truck.

Understand I'm a guy that loves the rumble of a cammed bigblock at idle, the growl of a 5.0HO at 5K, but also the scream of a V12 Ferrari and the utter power of a 55AMG anything!
