    The points (or pointless sensor) make and break the circuit through the primary of the coil. The coil provides the high voltage secondary for the spark plugs.

    thanks again guys, got another one....

    if you install a point-less distributor do you still need the ignition coil?

    not sure how these two work together.

    Yes you do

    What do the #'s tell you specifically about the 289?
    It is probably the original 289 engine in your 1960 Hawk. The build sheet will tell you for sure.

    The only thing it tells you is that it is a 289 from a 1960-model car, probably a Hawk, but conceivably from a police marshal or some other special order vehicle. As such, it could have been equipped several different ways, and if it has an oil filter, it is the partial-flow type that is mounted on top of the engine.

    go to this page and scroll to the bottom to look at the picture referencing where to look for your engine number, you are not looking in the right spot.

    it is on the front right block when looking at the engine standing in front of your car. You will likely have to wipe off some grease/oil before even seeing it.
    also look at post #4 of this thread showing a stamped number.

    Those are not serial numbers but either part numbers or casting numbers.....your looking in the wrong spot. Look for a number that is stamped in not raised.

    That's because they are yet to receive the June 2012 Turning Wheels Co-Operator, Ed. <GGG> BP
