cust. Distributor. prestolite/HEI. need input!
this is what i am doing, and i am looking for experience, advice, input, and additional parts: i am taking a Prestolite dist from a 75 AMC 401 v-8 and a GM HEI distributor and "splicing" the two together. i am then going to take the HEI shaft and shorten it to whatever the new length needs to be to work in the AMC 401. i know i will have to make a new lower bushing for the prestolite housing to mate the HEI shaft. any input about this? i have a complete machine shop at my disposal, so accuracy is not a problem. i am also looking for a couple more prestolite distribuors and a couple more HEI's. i don't want to spend much since this is all R&D, but since i have the machines set up to do one, i might as well do 4 or 5. i am willing to give someone $10 for either dist(includes shipping). and if the project is a success, i will sell the new custom dist. back to you for what i have in it in parts. i know my price is low, but thats my offer. i am going to try to document everything as well as i can and so anyone can copy my work. thank-you for your thoughts and experience! matt
