I actually got that distributor off of eBay. Mid to late 70's Chevy products with the 250 I6 use the HEI big cap. Everything on the distributor is the same except for the drive gear, I just used the gear off of my original distributor. And that was that it's an easy swap.J_burton, I have the same set up as you on my 71 800. 232 with the 3 speed. I have been thinking about a newer distributor, could you expand on how that swap went for you and where you purchased parts?
Thanks. On the electrical, I'll find out tonight. Going down in a bit to put the diode in and test. I also have to take measurements and pics of the seat brackets and mounting locations of the originals as these Corbeau brackets don't fit.Yeah I built my own, the drivers side was easy just used some angle iron bolted to the original slides and then drilled the 4 holes to mount the seats. The passenger side I removed the cover from the seat and actually welded some strap iron onto the bottom of the front of the seat and made it like the original where it pivoted on the cross bar in the front and then I made a bracket to where the back just sat down against the rear floor like the original did. If I get time tonight I will take a picture of what I did for you, its hard to explain but it was fairly easy to do. Did you get your electrical issue figured out?
Here is my build thread: http://www.binderplanet.com/forums/index.php?threads/self-sabotage-1970-800a.139661/
I have a set of scout II axles that I want to swap in and incorporate the disk brakes and power steering. So here are my first batch of questions.
Brakes: I have sourced the master cylinder, proportioning valve, and booster for a Scout II. What am I missing?
Power steering: I have sourced the box from a Scout II. What bracket did you use to install the power steering box?
What brackets and pullies did you use for the power steering pump? What pump did you use and where did you get it? What else am I missing?
