Re: Pulse Generator

I had a lot of questions on my pulse generator also and I became a little better versed on it. Now that you have the engine out and the rear cover off take out the bolts under neath the p.g. cover there are 3 and remove the unit from the engine. Now you will see a small pin that aligns the unit to t...

Re: piston pin and piston

Gary, I have a spare 1980/81 engine, the bore is bad. New first or second oversize pistons are not to be had. 1200 piston are available new.
