      I have similar on my Ford truck. I got the real GM style HEI big cap distributor. It just doesn't make sense to get something bastardized. With the others, you're stuck with that Holden/whateverthehellitis module that no one has locally. At least with the big cap stuff, everybody has it. So far, it's surpassed the five year mark flawlessly.

        Have towing on all my cars.... 4 bucks every 6 months.. LOL. I bring tools, but I have to feel confident. Took the '77 RC on a 9 state, almost 4k mile tour and it went perfect! Then up to the U.P. a couple months ago, only replaced a wiper bushing. But we did our homework on the old girl before we ever left.

          LOL.... You plan, you take the vacation time off from work, I'd rather spend it doing what we planned other than laying on my back for 2 days at a rest area.. :D

          The inertia switch is power in, power out to the pump and ground. Or you could make the ground switched. It'll never know the difference.

            That's so much paranoia I can't even believe it!.. your future Trippin... You got yourself laying on your back for two days in a rest stop..lol... At the very least you can get towed to a hotel.. where your wife could be swimming in the pool while you're laying on your back in the parking lot LOL... You cheap bastard!... You pull a small motorcycle trailer with the Harley on the back...???.. do I have to come up with all the ideas... I don't have to remind you of pulling that truck out of the weeds that have been sitting in the same spot for 20 years and going an hour and a half South to buy a motor and transmission for it and switch it from a stick shift to an automatic I do a mechanical restoration on it I drive it to Colorado on 104° days..
            Was I scared... NO...

            Just remember no matter what you carry with you the only thing that will fail is what you don't have. Murphy's Law.

              You can pull a brand new car off the showroom floor and it could break down... One thing in life there's no guarantees...

                To pump or not to pump
                that there be the question.

                Than fly to a part store that we
                know not where it be?

                With this regard the currents at high elavation are airy.

                And to lose the name of pump action.
                Go forth on your size 14s into the darkness.

                But wait the part of me that doth plans, fails me not.
                In the container of my forsightedness is that which I desire.

                My salvation in the darkness of night.
                The answer that will propel me forward.

                The holy grail. My spare pump.

                  I’ve put 2 Holley blue pumps on my 2001 Ram 2500. Diesel. First pump lasted 6 months and about 10,000 kilometres. 2nd pump 7 years and 120,000 kilometres. Lots of kilometres in -40 weather. Kim
