Stick to Sewiv's shopping list

Carefully chosen you can land all of it, including the MSD coil, for under $140.00. That is "NUTHIN" compared to what you're dumping into your tank at 6-7 mpg:shocked

Throw away the spark plugs and get Autolite Coppers (read why in the write up). Be sure to gap em' out to .055 and after it's running great for a few days, then bump the timing.

The plug wires on yours sound whipped to death !

Throw the platinums in the lake

get the cheapest Autolite Coppers for your engine. Buy the best plug wires you can afford and anybody's new cap & rotor.

Your local stealership sells Ford Motorsport 9mms for @ $45.00 a set.

Read the advice given in Sewiv's thread and follow it. It won't be hard to improve on your mileage.

You do realize that all of the items that you listed help MAKE UP the ignition system right?

And yes most of the parts can be had locally. Just read the thread it will tell you everything.
