It's setup for street, they are right for what I want, can't wait to install it.
I know all about the duraspark 2, just wanted an all together unit that is adjustable, I didn't want to buy a bunch of items and need to find locations to mount it all, clean and self contained is neater.

I may try to go by his shop one day in the spring to see what all he does, can't beat a complete unit with wires for $75, just gotta be sure to get the lower unit stuck into it before installation. Court has a nice van, would love to see it up close one day.

I've yet to do it, van's still in SC, I know the coil wire has to be replaced due to the resistor, this thing needs 12 volts, and I've not found a diagram to help find the thing either, I don't want to replace the entire wire. I'm slow at it. LoL

OK, I can't get it in, it hit the heater hose that's on the intake by the distributor, has a temp controlled vacuum switch. Any photos of Courtney's?

Here is how you wire up a DUraspark II distributor to a HEI control module:

Just saying, this fits. That huge HEI head grafted onto a Ford distributor shaft is ugly, a bad idea, and unnecessary.

HERE is a Duraspark distributor from a van that will work. Get a heat sink, heat sink compound, soldering supplies, and a relay for the (=) feed to the module, and you are in business.

I have money invested in this distributor, I tried to sell it with no luck, I don't have the cash for another, and will not invest in one, I plan to figure out how to make what I have work.

OK, well, clearance is the issue. Would a different intake help? THe heater hose fitting on the front of the small blocks changed over the years. When I was running an Edelbrock intake I had to get an extender pipe from Home Depot to run the stock heater hoses pipe.
