Is there a 6-cylinder HEI I can get for a 71 L-6 250? If so what vehicles were they in?
I agree, but it was the first year for HEI so maybe a little learning curve. I would be willing to bet the change was due to assembly line labor. Someone had to install it on the side cover bolts and that would have been an extra step going down the line. When placed in the cap it then became a subassembly step and the completed cap was in a bin. As the engine came by the cap assembly was installed eliminating the extra step of installing the coil.DriveWFO said:I wouldn't think an external coil mounted to the engine block would be any better than an in-cap coil as far as heat is concerned
