    I yanked my distributor apart last night, and I'm buying a new pickup coil, module, and condensor, and if I can find them, those bushings that the advance weights fit over. I was looking at the old dried up grease that was packed into the recesses around the shaft bushings, and was wondering what type of grease I should use in there when I put it back together. Thanks in advance.

    The guy at O'Reilly's said to use dielectric grease, but I'm pretty sure that's only for electrical stuff, and for the module, not for the lubrication of the distributor shaft. Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

    I do know you have to use the clear dielectric grease under the one part to let it dissipate heat to the HEI body or the pickup burns out sooner. Don't know about any other grease but the Mr. Gasket HEI dist. re-curve kit is about 10 bucks while you're in there.
