Distributor question for the junk yard experts

I just finished a tune up on my 63 CJ5 with a 225 (circa 1971) engine. It runs a lot better, but I'm thinking about the possibilities of going pointless ie a TR type upgrade. I can find lots of info for the upgrade on the 258 straight six, but nothing for my 225 v6. I know the 225 is not too common any more, but maybe someone has done this before.
Thanks.
Brent

I'm not the JYE but I don't think it can be done on the odd fire. I think your stuck with either the HEI or some kind of electronic ignition upgrade like Pertronics.

Yes, and it's simple. The earlier 231's were off fdire - with HEI. They drop right in.
The later 231's were even fire - won't work.

Check out the Jeepster board - do a search - they do it all the time.

I don't remember the years right off the top of my head, but there is a remote coil application, and a factory style cap for remote coil for that application...

Re: Distributor question for the junk yard experts

Well Aaron... not only did you miss the point... you posted all of this crap in the wrong thread (trashing yet another).

Please try again. I see that you are trying but just not getting there so far. Try breathing through your nose.
