in my opinion.

Theres no reason to. with a carb theres no Injectors. and what not

so even if you figured out how to do it. IT wouldnt matter the computer wouldnt be working.

Cuz think about it. Ever popped the hood on a 60-late 70s car/truck.

Thers only a few wires. Hot to coil, ground, (?) negative. Then it goes the dizzy. Which obviosly distributes the power to the plugs.

Then if you are fancy you got a Electric fuel pump. If not it runs off the motor turning over...

So i dont think so. But thats just my opinion.

Anthony

Ps im not a wiring expert...so im pretty sure i covered it tho.

Then waht would be the point of running the harness anyways. think of all those sensors you wouldnt haft to use...

On a EFI if a sensor goes bad the car runs crappy.
ON a carb if it runs funny, check your timing, tuning and its find. It just an adjustment. Not money (in most cases)
