      That is the big cap unit. You may likely run into clearance issues with that one.

      You may want to contact @Johnny Mac from Blueprint Engines. He sells much better fitting distributors than that one, that also have an HEI mini module. for less $ than that too. I believe those big ones hit the wiper motor...

      My first thought as well.
      About $50 on ebay...small base GM hei style dist. Got mine thru skipwhite.
      Fits the v8 A body very well.
      Works awesome on my 360.
      2 wire hookup, blaster coil and that's it.
