    I've been running an electric fan on my '71 240 for about ten years now and have never had an electrical problem with, or because of, it. I don't think you will have a problem.

    Legal Requirements??

    It's been awhile since I lived in California, so I don't remember many of the details of the CARB regulations, but you may want to check them before you remove too much of the smog equipment. As I...

    HP Increase???

    I would be surprised if you get a horsepower increase by changing the ignition system. What you can get is a better running engine and, with a coil upgrade, a stronger spark. IMHO the best thing...

    AWESOME

    A very impressive "remanufacture" job. And I agree with your expressed attitude. It's your car, your time, your money - you get to make the decisions. Congratulations.
