Not to knock your supurb welding skills but you cant weld to the level of installing a 4 link kit.


LMAO!  I beg to differ.

In the photos my welding skills seem lacking because I'm using a flux-core welder maybe because of the splatter look -- but trust me I can weld properly with enough penetration as needed to maintain structural integrity.

I think you should keep this strictly as a results thread and continue the rambling in the other one 


Robert cold engines want fuel. maybe you should try a carb with a choke on it?


This forum only allows 300 pages max.

I am not changing my carb.  I know about cold engine wants.  But too much fuel in the chamber and it kicks back against the starter.  It is random and picky.

I will be installing the MSD box next week.

the roller spring perches will help as much as taking the swaybar off


Thanks for reminding me about those -- they are also on my "list"!

Can you imagine Robert with all that power and control.  Probably immediately lock the timing, lock the pulsewidth and lock the IAC... Cheesy

Well, I had called Summit racing two different times and they said "no problem, the MSD unit should arrive at your address in 3 to 4 business days" after I had sent it back to them figuring that I didn't need it but I later on had regretted sending it back to them and called them to cancel the send-back.  LOL!

You see, the very next day after I had sent it packing back to them by FedEx the Merc gave me another starter kick-back.

Well, long story short Summit said that they would send it back (I of course said that I will pay for the ride back to me) to me but they didn't and instead gave me my purchase price credited back to my account.

Well the good news is this past 8 or 9 days or so I have successfully learned how to start the Merc in the cold mornings using separate switches for the starter motor and the spark plug ignition power without giving it any gas the first time I spin the engine and I have not had any further starter kick-back problems!

The key is the first time (whenever) to just spin the engine and then a few seconds later to turn on the spark plugs.  Then if it won't start the first try (like on cold mornings when the engine needs to be richer than normal) I can touch the gas pedal a little bit before the second try.  If I give it any gas on the first try it kicks-back.  Otherwise it will start up either on the first try (if it's warm) or on the second try (if it's cold).  No more problems.

Picky-assed Pertronix distributor 32* of timing locked-out Merc!      Grin

I was just trying to setup a priceless joke. I wanted to see the responses if one of the mods caught on, and locked it for fun at 300.

IOW I have a totally separate switch that feeds power to my starter motor and a different switch that feeds power to my ignition system -- two different electrical circuits.

With the ignition system switch off the plugs are NOT getting any power.

I take it you have some kind of toggle inline with the power supply to the pertronix module in the distributor?

I have something similar for my HEI module that allows me to crank without any ignition taking place.
