I didn't pick it, my family did. As for the burnout susceptibility, ALL ignitors 1,2,or 3 are prone to burnout if you leave the key in the on position without the car running. Says as much on the instructions for setting the rev limiter on the Flamethrower 3 distributor I have in my '68. So in light of all that, I'm not gonna' look a gift horse in the mouth. I'm gonna' be thankful for a wife, and family that is thoughtful enough to get me a gift I could actually use.

LOL on the BNIB for sale. Kind of like one of my musical shameless plugs.

Oh yeah, showed the new guy at work the vid of you running down that Charger at the strip and after explaining to him the grip loss,street tires, high gearing, etc.,he was like, "I want a Cleveland stroker when I find my F1 to build." Thought you'd get a kick out of that.
That's a good answer!

But, I think I am correct on the II not being susceptible and the I being so (or at least I am not convinced). To satisfy myself of this, I went and looked at the instructions for both, I mentions the issue, II does not. So, not sure why Flamethrower 3 distributor instructions would say this and the instructions for the II (and III I assume) would not.

Shame? What's that? :buck:

An F1 as in a McLaren F1? If yes, that is indeed funny!

F1 as in old Ford pickup F1. Although the Mclaren would be hilariously cool w/a Cleveland stroker.

I had no idea norma was something you could look up on urban dictionary, I was referring to his rifle.

Yeah, .308 Norma Magnum was supposed to be the HOT .30 cal., but the .300 Win Mag came out and rendered it pretty much obsolete. When I bought it from my wife's uncle he failed to mention the Norma Mag part of the .308 he sold me and the stamp was in a peculiar place.

If I had known, I wouldn't have bought it. And of course he has all but disappeared since selling me the rifle. Oh well, I have a WWII era sniper rifle, in an even rarer chambering.

It's based of the 300 h&h I think. Really cool cartridge just only really holds theoretical advantages over the win mag and is pretty hard to get any ammo for.

I haven't seen that it holds any advantage over the win mag at all, and you're right ammo is hard to find. Mostly online retailers and super expensive. I looked into getting it converted BACk to 30/06 but the cost would be more than the gun is worth at this point. Yeah is anywhere from $60 per 20 rds to $90 per 20 rds.

What about 300 win mag? I'm not sure what's involved chamber wise but that is a boring but worthwhile cartridge, (I might have one hahaha)

I wouldn't call the 300 Win Mag boring. I respect any round that kicks as hard as my pistol grip 12 ga. The first time my brother in law shot the one I used to have(Browing X bolt), he didn't listen to me and just about ended up on his back (lol). Told me "I used to shoot my Dad's 308. I can handle this!" The next words out of his mouth were a scared/surprised "Oh my Lord." I like that round and will probably be the next rifle I get so I can put the ole Springfield into the "look at and appreciate the history" section of the collection.
