Wake up



Since this place is deader than an abandoned graveyard I thought I would try and spark some interest. Got this today and plan on putting it in this weekend. A vacuum advance dizzy. And programmable. Welcome to 1980. Always had a stutter around 1800rpm. This is supposed to take care of that. They even have one for laptop tuning.

Big money? I like the idea of controlled advance. Need a knock sensor?

When the elders over on the 356 registry give their approval it has to be good. Doesnt it?

I haven't looked yet where a good place to tap off of a carb would be.

At 460 I'm not sure if that is bad or not. Not like there are many bolt ons at this stage though.

I got mine at Christmas and can't wait to get it in my new engine which is almost ready to go back together. I haven't checked to see if my Dellortos have a vacuum port. I hope so. The Tune version doesn't come with any curves. You'll have to program a stock curve in as a baseline.

STEP 2: Out with the old, in with the new
You may wish to verify that the correct advance curve has been selected in your '123' : using a 5mm Allen wrench remove the hexagonal plug in the bottom face of the housing. Inside the hole you'll find a 16 position rotary switch. ( '0' to 'F' )

And it doesn't state it but check it with your timing light

Les, i wish i could afford a real 356, n then i'd help wake this room up. it's a shame that 356's are worth more than a kings ransom. If i was able to buy a 356, i'd want one that looked Exactly like this one. Beautiful!




a replica may be my only hope...
