I use NGK FR5 Stock No. 7373 on all of the AMC engines that I build. They have a 5/8" hex which makes them easier to install and they made a big difference on the dyno.

I am not a fan of the mid plate. Just have the oil pump cover lapped to get a nice finish.

Here is one that I am finishing up for a Jeep SCRAMBLER. It is a 8.5:1 360 with a 268H cam and Torker intake manifold. The 268H is really not a big cam compared to a stock 401 cam. It has more...

Do you have a Duraspark ignition system?
Every Duraspark distributor that we have dyno tested had to be mechanically modified to keep the timing from going to infinity.
