    not sure whats going on there, but Randy is right in that aspect...

    SB and BB are the same....

    tho i have no probs with a stock setup, nothing wrong with having a highend dizzy... i ran a MSD billet in the Chevelle and loved it..

    the ones you listed look alot like a DUI....

    Yeah they do....I have a MSD billet on the '73!
    If they are the same, I'm gonna order one for the '75.
    But, I'd hate to waste $120.00 on it if it doesn't fit! :doah:

    pretty certain on that, that ads the first i can remember hearing to the contrary....... never known them to be different... go take a peek at summit, they should all be listed as SB/BB

    not sure whats going on with that.. just different endings to the part numbers.... if you put either of those Whtney part numbers in Google, they come up with a bunch of places selling the same dizzys as JC Whitney...

    anyone got an idea? the only thing i could possibly think of would be they have a different advance curve in their SB vs BB.... :dunno:

    Order it for that price, and if it doesnt fit for some reason, sell it on the board for ten bucks.

    i have no desire for a new dizzy... thats about #117 on my priority list... :wink1:

    just trying to figure out if there's a reason to the BB/Sb listing other than them being idiots... :doah:

    Yeah, using the part numbers given, it has the same part number for both the BB and SB at Shop.com. Well, guess I'll be a Guinea pig, as the one in the '75 has a lot of miles on it, and I can swap it for my wife's '73 K-10 points type!
