Re: Distributor swap ?
IMO, the best *stock replacement* distributor swap would be to remove the '78 Prestolite distributor (or do you have a goldbox on the firewall?).
get a Holley points distributor from a pre 74 Scout II or IH truck/T'all, dump-truck, school bus, whatever. Put a Pertronix Ignitor in it. Put the points in your glovebox "just in case" right next to that book of matches.
I have a recurved points/Pertronix distributor from Gryphin Racing in my new 345 and so far so great.
I've been replacing all of my distributors with points distys and Pertronix ignitors. I do have two V8 goldbox distributors, and one 4cyl Goldbox EI.. might put one on mom' s Scout to dump the '79 Prestolite..
