That is why I walk around the salvage yards digging into everything that is "Chebby", Even some old points distributors have the correct stuff in them but to be sure measure the 2 pins that hold the center in place.

The fun of owning older equipment never ends

AH Jim - remember those neat billet aluminum complete HEI distributors for about $40 on Ebay a while back? I still have the one I bought sitting over behind me in the closet...

Save your money...


Those weights?????? sure I know exactly which ones you mean....those are the ones located on the rack right next to the chinese tools and the bargain bin.....lol. Yes some of the genaric parts are crap, but some stores actually carry performance parts that work. I have had no issues with the MSD distributor parts, but to each there own.....

Gary, Have your ever installed and tested that billet distributer?
Don't purchase ignition parts from e-bay since only GM parts are trusted in the rig....

"Davis ignitions" (DUI) seem interesting since they will curve it to your specs but I don't know if the module is compatible with a GM module incase it drops dead in the middle of nowhere....
