I grew up with carbs and points!
I'll take the "new" electronically managed drive trains any day over "old school".
More efficient,easier to troubleshoot,better mpg,no over heating,fires right up,
AND......my dream motor, to replace my 550 hp carbed small block in my Vette...[Link: paceperformance.com]
I've done this retro for others quite a few times!
Perfection with pump gas.
No more 110 octane in 5 gallon jugs!!
Sorry to hear about your other truck.
