Plug & Play

PerTronix’s new plug-and play-cast distributors for Ford 221-302ci, and small- and big-block Chevrolet engine applications are designed to provide maximum ignition performance and easy installation all at a price you can afford.

This distributor allows you to upgrade your outdated points or stock electronic distributor with a performance proven distributor that features the patented Ignitor or Ignitor III electronic ignition module and an OE look cast aluminum housing. These distributors are perfect for the restoration guys who want a stock-look distributor without having to use a worn out, 40-year-old part or the ultimate sleeper who wants to hide the modern performance.

The PerTronix Ignitor is also compatible with any inductive ignition system coil, but high RPM performance can be improved when used with their low resistance Flame-Thrower coils. If you’re using a capacitive discharge system or the PerTronix Second Strike box, no problem, the PerTronix distributor is compatible. The Ignitor III version features a builtin digital rev limiter and multi-spark, so no external box is needed.

Unlike most auto parts store distributors, these units feature all brand-new (not rebuilt) parts. The gears are hardened steel for exact tolerances and the vacuum canister is adjustable for optimum performance. The mechanical advance curve has been tailored for top performance and drivability. The distributors come with high dielectric strength cap and rotor with brass contacts.

Devilish Fuel Delivery

The introduction of an all-new carburetor, especially in this millennium, has become increasingly rare, but Demon Carburetion has done just that. Named the 625 Street Demon, it is engineered for hot rods with stock to mildly modified engines.

In appearance, its cast aluminum construction exhibits smooth and flowing contours and in operation it accommodates either square- or spread-bore-pattern intake manifolds without adapters.

A single fuel inlet ensures simple installation and two-stage metering rods accommodate most tuning requirements, without carburetor disassembly or removal. For cold starting, a proven electric-assist bimetal coil choke is provided.

Street Demons are available in three forms: all aluminum tumble-burnished, tumble-burnished with polymer fuel bowl, and all aluminum hand polished.

IFS for Fords

Heidts Automotive Group announced the availability of their Superide II IFS front suspension system for ’57 to ’64 Ford pickup trucks. Using their Mustang II-style dropped spindle, the innovative Heidts Superide II design uses a front steer mounted rack and pinion unit and employs a steering geometry very similar to the Mustang II, which has been proven to work very well on classic trucks.

The heavy-duty upper control arms use threaded adjusters for precise wheel alignment. Regardless of how large of road bump the suspension is subjected to, the threaded adjuster will never slip or loose alignment. The geometry of the suspension provides a low, smooth and highly steerable ride with no bump-steer and a moderate level of anti-dive already incorporated into the design.

A large, robust single-piece main crossmember makes the suspension system installation a breeze and eases engine installation. Combined with a full complement of mounting hardware and thoroughly detailed instructions, the installation will be as smooth as the ride you’ll get with the Heidts Superide II suspension system.

Tanked

Doc’s Kustom has a gas tank manufacturing division, that is, oddly enough, named Kustom Tanks. They will gladly build you a custom tank made to your own specifications, or, because the company makes a variety of tanks in useful sizes, they may already have one on the shelf that will fit your application.

All Kustom Tanks assemblies are built from lightweight 5052 aluminum and are internally baffled and pressure tested. Every tank is constructed with a sender ring, filler neck, internal pickup tube, and rollover valve for added safety. They even install a free sender in every tank they sell.

Also shown here is Doc’s billet aluminum fuel injection pump module featuring a high-performance pump, which can be ordered separately or installed in your tank assembly. Just tell them what you need and they’ll do the rest. All products are made in-house in the USA.

XL Pan for Fords

There is no such thing as having too much oil. It’s the blood of your engine, and without sufficient oil, it will die. High performance engines, under heavy stress, cannot be subjected to oil starvation without suffering expensive internal damage of some kind.

The pan is zinc iridited for corrosion protection, and the sump is 8¼-inches deep. A splash baffle is provided to keep the oil in the bottom of the pan for quick pick up.
