roguevogue Posted April 28, 2006 Share Posted April 28, 2006 I finally made the time to fit the HEI distributor that I got from HFH a while back. I had to remake the HT leads with the correct fittings on the dizzy end as they are the wrong sex . This type of distributor is supposed to be less susseptible to water than the standard V8 lucas one. The distributor body is HUGE compared to the standard unit so I had to remove the lug that the bolt goes through on the near-side water way where the inlet manifold meets the head. All was fine until I removed a bit too much lug and the water escaped! Anyway, after removing the whole manifold and welding up the hole, refitting and replacing all the jubilee clips and gaskets, it runs!
