Hello, I just purchased an original 1978 Chrysler New Yorker Brougham 440. It has the original lean burn still intact and functioning. I have read a few articles on replacing it with electronic ignition and I just wanted to make sure there will be no surprises when I hopefully do the conversion Thurs.

Will I have to do anything other than wire in the ignition module and distributor and disconnect the lean burn computer. I have read a couple places about a idle mixture solendoid, but it was not about a 440 conversion.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I put the Mopar kit on my 5th Ave. 318 and had to make no changes to the carb. Got mine from Mancini Racing and called them about the carb and they said it should be OK as is. Been just fine for over 8 years.
