    Thanks for posting that link, Jeff. That's a very good site, and appears to be about the best choice out there for an easy upgrade over the OEM units.

    Enjoy the little things in life, and you may look back one day and realize that they were really the BIG things.

    To answer his comment about a notch in the dist cap---------that notch lined up with the mount of the vacume advance mount.


    The Accell dual point dist can be wired with a simple switch to either use both sets of points for dwell or wired separate to have the other set so as to have two timing points. I did this with my Ford dual points back in early 60s but the Accell made it much easier with there wiring methods

    Personally, I like the GM HEI, and even mopar makes a version: I'm running it on my dodge 318. Although, the module does seem a bit delicate. I keep a spare in the glove box.

    Education is expensive. Keep that in mind, and you'll never be terribly upset when a project goes awry.
