    What years were these in use, and in what vehicle.
    I just dug one out of my stash.
    I didn't know they had such a thing.
    Its a Mopar distributor

        Lean burn. They have no mechanical advance.

          It figures it would be something like that.
          I don't even know how you would hitch it up.
          Can it be converted to single pickup.

            Possibly a good way to incorporate a start retard if the timing is set locked out.

              As I remember someone looked into this and there are rotor phasing problems. Bear in mind these were designed to work with electronic spark control

                If it doesn't have a mechanical advance, I wouldn't use it.

                    You can have another one because I took it off my 77 400 lean burn Cordoba to go with conventional distributor.
