    Ford F series inline 6 ignition options

    Hi,
    Trying to help my mate sort out the ignition on his i6 motor. He don't do internet and is looking for a UK solution if poss rather than importing parts from the US.
    I'm not 100% sure whether it's a 240 or 300 cubic inch but I don't think this affects the options (you'll correct me if I'm wrong hopefully).

    He got the engine to swap into another vehicle - it came with the distributor but no ignition module. I understand it's a late '80s engine and from what I can find out, that would have had a Duraspark II module.
    He's an old technology kind of person and would prefer a points type distributor.

    So the questions:

    1) Are there likely to be any compatibility problems fitting a points type distributor from an earlier engine? With my brief bit of research I think the blocks have stayed the same at least.

    2) If keeping it electronic is a better option (better efficiency / retarded ignition on cranking etc?) - was the Duraspark II fitted to any UK cars that would work in this application or are they vehicle specific? I did come across someone using a module from a Granada on a SBF V8.

    Oh, and if you have the parts to complete either of those 2 options, please let me know.
    Many thanks.
    Simon

    This is a conversion you can do to replace the missing module.

    DuraSpark/TFI to HEI/TFI Conversion - Street2Mud - Welcome!

    Also have a look on the Fordsix.com site just put Duraspark 11 conversion in the search box

    Try the distributor doctor. You can find him on Google. You should talk him into electronic ignition (pertronix) as it will give a better spark and be grief free. **** easy to fit too
