    I need to know if my old HEI distributor will work on my new 350

    The HEI come off of a 305 w/ a 4b Q-jet that had a electrical fitting in the carb

    The 350 has a new 600 cfm elderbrock

    Thanks

    I think I have a HEI/ESC; Do you know what would happen if I use it.
    It does have a vac advance. And what would i lose if I got just a regular HEI

    You're already throwin what computer there is out of whack, IF it's even working, by not using the stock carb, just yank the ESC dist, and instal a standard vacuum advance unit, hook it up old style.:D
