so just picked this awesome 79 and im hooked.

major thanks and appreciations for car lovers and people giving out information on this awesome site.

been reading these forums learning alot.

first thing to tackle is getting her started. it cranks but dont see gas going to the fuel and dont think it has a spark.


also i know nothing about points ignition.

does any manufacturers sell any bolt on electronic ignition swaps?



Thanks for your help!

I used a stock electronic dizzy from a 2nd Gen LUV. (These go on into various Isuzus and early S-10s.) Cheap on ebay. Did a little write up on it. It eliminated the points, and the truck has been easier to tune up since. Clearly one of my easiest upgrades, (and until I changed the carburetor) it made the biggest difference in the performance of the stock engine.

Here's my write up.
