Well, I'm finally getting back to collecting parts for my boat resto.

First up, I need a marine(closed compartment) dizzy for a basically stock 1972 Olds 455. I was hoping to pick up a MSD 85296, but cant seem to find one anywhere(did they discontinue it)? I will consider other comparable marine units, but really like the simplicity of an "all in one" unit. Opinions on this would be appreciated...Second...I want to convert to an electric fuel pump. My carb is a Holley 750cfm 4160 with the choke removed and vacuum secondaries. I'm new to aftermarket EFPs, and from what I have read I will need a regulator as well. Again....opinions appreciated....

Third...oil relocation kit....just something basic will work, dont think I need a cooler(yet at least...bigger plans for the next motor).

Finally....I still need all the plumbing for the water/fuel/oil stuff...I'm hoping that someone has a box of old fittings taking up space that just want to get rid of them. I know one can spend a fortune on that stuff, I'm just trying to keep this a "budget build". Dont get me wrong, I would love to just plop down my CC and get all new, but that just aint happening...

Thanks for looking, and even more for replying......Nathan

I've got a Pertronix HEI dizzy................cap is faded from sitting in the sun, but other then that it's in perfect condition. New weights and springs installed by C & J Engineering last year (only about 10 hours on it since) and switched from vacuum to mech advance.

$100 + the ride...............

Interested, but I really want to stick to marine parts, last thing i need is a blown up boat/family. Gave the link a quick "late night" look, seems to be non marine. BUT...if it is good to go and just not coast guard approved, I may be game.....please pm me with response. Dont want to bump this up too much....

For everyone else, got the fuel pump and reg on the way, and pending on the oil relocation kit.......I love this site. Thanks to all...
