Re: Why Cant I do This ???
The distributor isn't a problem.
A magnetic trigger is a magnetic trigger, it will just have to be connected to the GM Module so the computer can hook up. This is simple, but you will have to make a protective case for the module out of sheet metal, and you will have to change to the GM style remote coil, or match the resistance with the Ford E-core coil.
If it's a I-6, you can put the late modle module in a say, '76 I-6 distributor that has the remote coil.
That solves the distributor problem.
We haven't exactly got the tach thing figured out, but Mag should be able to help with that....
You will want to use a camshaft with similar profile so the fuel injection knows what the valve train is doing.
GM fuel injection systems are big on vacuum signal, so make sure your engine isn't tired, and not making any vacuum anymore or the cam isn't shot....
Otherwise, it's just wiring and keeping the color codes straight.
