HEI DISTRIBUTORS ARE THE SAME,ONLY THE DRIVE GEAR IS DIFFERENT THEY WILL FIT 300/340(A LITTLE INTAKE MANIFOLD CLEARANCING NEEDED) 350 400/430/455,..WILL NOT EXCHANGE WITH NAILHEAD

Make that, all are the same, but big block 400,430,455 have a different gear. And none will fit a nailhead. I know you said the same thing dbman, I just wanted to be sure he got the idea. <P>------------------<BR>buickfam@aol.com<BR>Life long Buick Fan.<BR>1965 Skylark H/T<BR>1965 Gran Sport Convertible<BR>1948 Chevy Pickup with 401 Buick.<BR>"Fan of anything that moves human beings"

There was a guy on this BB several months ago that was adapting HEIs to fit nailheads. He may have even posted a link to some photos. Can't remember his name, though.<BR>
