Re: I thought chevy were the good guys :(
As far as I know, the coils and modules between the 6 cyl and 8 cyl HEIs are the same.
I've got an HEI in my 258, and I carry a full spare dist in my parts box. You can swap the caps in no time, which gives you a different coil, and the module is an easy swap.
Most of the time you can pick up an HEI dizzy at a swap meet for $10, so I can see the pain in $60 for a coil. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/censor.gif[/img] I've got 2 or 3 in the garage somewhere.
The 6 cyls dizzys are hard to come by nowadays, but an 8 cyl should give the key spare components.
