    All distributors are the same as far as fit with the exception of the 366 and 427 tall deck BB which use a longer distributor due to the .400" taller deck.

    All points distributors are the same, all HEI distributors are the same if they have a 4 pin control module but when you get into the 7 pin control module there are many different modules. There is also a large cap HEI and a small cap HEI but regarding your question, you may replace a distributor with anything other than a 366 or 427 tall deck distributor. :thumb:

    4x4 High is right...

    What he said!!...the only other ones that WONT work besides the "tall block" big block ones are the 348 and 409 motors..they are shorter!--you CAN use an HEI in a 348/409 if you have collar/spacer sleeve custom made at a machine shop,in case anyone is wondering.. :crazy:
