Hey gang...

What do you like using for plugs in a 'B? Mine's a '72 18V motor, freshly
rebuilt, no smog equip whatsoever. I'd like to use my stereo, so something
appropriately resistor-equipped is desireable. I've read that NGK BP6ES or
BP7ES plugs are good. What say you?

Second question, same motor. I'm attempting to statically time its ignition,
but the Pertronix electronic gizmo means conventional guidance about points
just beginning to open, etc, doesn't work. It's the type with light beam
interrupted by the rotation of a four-armed plate. Is the beginning of the
beam interruption akin to the beginning of points opening (ie, as the arm
starts to rotate through the light beam), or is it the end of the beam
interruption as the beam is being uncovered? I need a starting point before
I try firing up the new engine. TIA...
