i am considering going from points to electronic,butim not sure wether to
go with an converson kit,or competly change the distribtor.ihave been
running into the referenceof an feblock.im not sure what that means in
refence to an stock 352.any comments will be appricated.
a 352 is a "FE" family motor.the best way to do this swap is with a
pertronix ignitor. costs around $70, and replaces the points and condenser
with a magnetic style pickup, and a sender that slips onto the dist shaft
under the rotor. you can still use your stock coil, cap, and rotor. this
looks like a completely stock setup from the outside except for 2 wires to
the coil instead of 1. takes about 15 min to install, then forget about it.
I have used them in over 10 cars, 5 or 6 trucks, and 5 or 6 farm tractors
over the past 15 years, and every one is still in use, with no problems
Your 352 is an FE series motor (332, 352, 360, 390, 406, 427 and 428 were all
motors). There are electronic kits to replace your points, Pertronix comes to
This should be all you need with a stock motor. If you want to go to a modern
electronic ignition you will have to buy an aftermarket distributor and module
all of the wiring. I don't think there were any FE motors built with electronic
ignition although there "might" have been a few 360 powered pickup trucks with
Dura-Spark. If there were it would have only been 1 model year.
