Best mod we've made to ours! 440 in the M600 fires right off, no timing troubles, better MPG!

Hi Dave, My reason for switching is because I have tried 9, yes 9 New ignition modules from there different auto parts stores and not one of them would start my rig. My old one works fine. I just wanted a spare. I converted my 360 to fuel injection and it runs great. The HEI setup just gives me a hotter spark and therefore  better combustion of the fuel. Also better reliability and the parts are readily available at any auto parts store.

Jack,

Thanks for the idea, my 360 is apart now, low compression on #8, so pulling the head. It has always started immediately and I have a spare module from Autozone.

Are you referencing the small block (318/360) or large block (400/413/440) series? Not sure if they have the same ignition.

My 360 has a reluctance pickup ( no points) and an ignition module, I believe MoPar started this system in 1973, so earlier engines would certainly benefit.

Is anyone interested in replacing their ignition module with a HEI module? Better starting, better mileage, more power. Around $100.00 and MORE reliable than the stock Mopar ignition module. I have had problems getting a good new module so I changed to a HEI setup. I will post a blog on the conversion if people are interested.

Is anyone in need of a Chilton  repair  manual for 1967-1988 Dodge and Plymouth Trucks? I have one in very good  condition. $12.50 plus shipping.

I am a new member from WV, my husband and I have an RV built on a 1992 Dodge.  The build was by L.E.R and we don't know much more about it.

Anyone know the towing capacity, or have an opinion for a 79 Dodge Delta.  440-3 engine runs strong and smooth.  Has trailer hookup for brakes. GVWR = 10,500.  Want ot pull my 24ft pontoon. homemade trailer is somewhat of a monolith on its own.
