thanks much on the info. i'm going to buy one of these puppies today.
took the 72 out around the block (in 2 years since i've owned it) for the first time sunday night. spent several hours just buffing and waxing on sunday. sure was fun!!
PS i had to replace a bunch of primary wires due to age. the insulation was cracked or missing. this included the + wire to the distributor. what i did was make a hole thru the existing rubber piece. i used the old piece to seal the distributor just like stock. i also used a sealed male/female connection in this wire just in case i ever needed to pull the coil again.
