Re: Distributor

I guess I'm not sure what I would need for a dist cap adapter? One that goes from a 79 304 dist. to a 302 Ford? Same with the cap, do I need one for a 302?
Thanks for the info.

Re: Distributor

There is NO upgrade for the Prestolite ignition.
No one makes anything for them, not even MSD will touch them.

If you convert to a Motorcraft/ DuraSpark igntion (Jeep started using them in '78), then you can do the cap and rotor upgrade.
