I'm almost ashamed to admit it(only almost cuz I didn't go out of my way
to buy it:), but when I bought the motor for the pinto from the junkyard,
it had a Wells TFI module on it.  That was a year an a half ago, and still
workin fine.  if I have a prob with it, I have a whole stash of TFI's
anyway...I don't know how the hell I aquired so many intakes and
distributors in the past year or two...
I'm not sayin the Wells is a nice peice, but only that i haven't had any
bad luck yet. I dunno, I removed the cover and promply lost it ages ago,
so maybe the cover missing keeps the insides cool.
This is comin from a guy who has like 3 diffrent brands of plug wires on
the same motor:)....
