Re: Got HEI dist. which drive gear do I use?

Sounds OK to me. Find the links for the HEI swap, somewhere here. I do not believe you can use the gear off your 87 dist - the I.D. is not correct, and I guess it has a sloppy fit. I bought mine from 4WPW, it was like $25. The older V8 AMC engines had the correct gear, supposedly.

Can't help you much more than that. If the dist fits in, crank the engine manually a few times, and see if the dist spins. My guess is you should be OK.

Good luck
