Hello From Atlanta GA


I recently purchased a 62 Comet for my daughter.
It is sort of a H.S. Graduation gift that she gets to help build.
It has a running 170 with Holley 1909.
I was told the engine and tran had been rebuilt.

I have worked on classics in the past but mainly FE motors and 350's
This little 6 is a new thing to me

Hoping to make this a father/daughter project that she can take to college with her at the end of this summer.

Looking forward to gleaning and hopefully providing some insight

Welcome aboard from the big A.
I would install new seat belts for safety reasons. You will have to reinforce the B pillar for the shoulder belt.
Install new plugs & i would advise a pertronix 1 to replace the points. You will need a full 12V for the pertronix.
Install a relay to get a reliable 12V source to the dist..
Check the tech section of the forum if in doubt in relay wiring. Bill
