If I have a 98 Explorer with 5.0, and 1980 F-150 with carbureted 302, What am I missing to be able to convert the Explorer motor to carb and distributor ignition? Besides the distributor gear to match the Explorer cam, is there anything else I need to watch out for? Between two complete vehicles do I have everything I need (besides dist gear)?
