Does AMC 304-401 distributor gear fit GM HEI?

I am trying to order a distributor drive gear from 4WD Hardware. Is it the one for AMC 304-401? Their part number is 3208615 for $24.99. Is this what I need for my GM HEI?

Thanks

I must have had a brain fart and missed this conversion all together...
Will someone please forward any information on a GM HEI going into an AMC 304-401?
Thanks in advance.

The conversion is for the 258.
The gear for the hei is off a v8 amc.
There's a bunch of guys that wish a swap for a v8 was junkyard easy.

There is a way to upgrade the AMC 290-304-360-390-401 ignition to HEI output with off the shelf parts. I did mine for just over $100.
I'm working on an tech article with a couple of other guys from this BBS, and it should be ready by the end of the week.
If you would like to see the article with pictures, contact the grand poo-bah here at Off-Road.com and ask him to post it in the tech section.
