You can pick up a HEI dist. cheap in about any jy. The coil is in the cap so you won't need your old coil. Be sure to get the cap and wires also. Simple swap. HTH Mike

The HEI is a self-contained unit that replaces the points w/an electronic module. Points-type distributors work well when you keep them adjusted properly and replaced regularly. The tab on the points that rides on the cam in the dist. wears and allows the points to close up.
