Distributor change

Recommended Posts

Been looking at Chevy HE distributors, does anyone know if they can be adapted for a 56 Buick - has anyone done this ??? Been finding it difficult to get spares for the distributor. I've now repaired the clips that held the cap down as couldn't locate new ones. Could only get old stock re vacuum advance and retire canister. Looking for a replacement distributor - any thoughts on this ??? Thanks for your comments Alf.

Regards Rod

Chevy stuff will not work. 57-66 nailhead distributors will work. If desired you can convert to electronic (Pertronix)...there are services available to convert to HEI.

I have used Pertronix on all of my Buicks for the last 20 years and have had absolutely no problems with them.
