Advance doesn't list a cap adapter for that distributor. The cap ad...

duraspark question?

Thanks for the help. I got the "pinto" distributor from advance, but they don't carry the adapter for that dist. And the old one from my 84 BII won't fit. If they can't find a adapter to fit, I will have to go back to the stock dist. I'm going to use a msd 6al and blaster coil. How much differance i...

distributor question

I'm doing away with my stock ignition..(DARN YES)..Is the spacer inbetween the dist. and the cap swappable when I change to my pinto dist. I bought a 2691 from advance and it didn't come with one? Is this a no brainer?

Cooling woes continue
