Does anyone know where and how to attach the 350 coils to the frame of a 175 SR?

Hi Randy,

Hope you can make sense of the attached PDF.

The welded brackets to frame are only on an SR frame.

The photograph checks out.

The frame has the brackets welded to the frame and the holes line up with the
350 coil bracket holes.

I'm good to go.

Thank you again.

I have been working slow but steady on the 175 Racer.
I will be posting a few pictures of the progress.

Nice job Randy!

Other than a confirmed sequoia green GTO, the SR's are next on my "want" list.  8)

Just a quick update on the 175 Racer progress;

It is alive! Yesterday after an all day work session
Larry Young and I got it running. It felt like the
Texas Two-Step. But we got it!

The problem was in the timing and points setting.

I will post both the SR 100 and SR 175 running.

Happy Labor Day Holiday!

Randy
