    Continuing on with the Black 63 race Car, 440 tased Max Wedge stye engine with TTI headers
    Where is the "Best" place to purchase "everything" on the fire Wall (ECU style ignition) ?
    I ordered a new harness from Bill and Linda Evans, Wiring harness for the "Header" car, not the Stock Exhaust manifold car...
    (makes a difference as the Header car is same as stock, Maxie car harness is longer to clear Stock manifolds)
    Thanks for any help
    YES; everything electrical on the Firewall is needed, Ignition wise not wiper motor etc.

      Joe Suchy, Mancini, Napa carries pretty much anything on the firewall if you don’t care how the parts are marked.

        I think Kramer's also has most of the items too. I've seen the electronic Vol Regulators, that look like the originals, on E-bay.

                I used Kramers for my wiring harnesses they fit perfect and no problems. I bought a electronic regulator at a show lasted about a year before it would over charge. Went back to a 30 yr old point style works fine ..other than lights flicker a tad. I would like to try another electronic regulator , anyone know of a good quality brand...I know thats a long shot any more.

                You can often get pretty good quality replacement parts from RockAuto.
                Just look up a different year/model if you need more modern stuff like an ECU.
                United and Standard are usually good brands.
                This summer I bought a tune up kit for my 93 Dakota from RockAuto it was United.
                Really good quality stuff, made in the U.S.A.! for about $40

                Things like brake parts I'd look up 1970 B and E body parts also. You'll find they are the same. Early '60s cars aren't always listed. I'm thinking they don't want to take the responsibility that they will work or they just don't know they'll work. These early cars take a lot more researching!
