    Guys, need your help i bought a pertronix distributor and found out my edelbrock heads and distributor dont fit. I had to grind a little off the head to force fit it. Do any of you guys know of a distributor preferably billet that can use my pertronix ignitor module, and uses vacum advance and mostly fit??

    I'm pretty sure the mallory unilite will take that module but verify to be 100% sure. The unilite works with EB rpm heads. My unilite doesn't have vaccum advance though

    Don`t feel pregnant ! You wouldn`t believe how much I had to take off my raised port heads to get a fast fuel. inj. dist. to work. They used a chevy/short dist., w/ a Chrysler flat on the shaft !
    Anyone going that route, go w/ an MSD locked dist. !!

    Lockedout? Wouldn't you want your timing to advance at higher rpms?

    I used to sell Mallory distributors for that reason. They would work in the RB's. Carry on.
