    Where is it located on an 83 K5? A pic or diagram would be helpful.

    It is inside the distributor . It is under the rotor , bolted on with a couple 1/4 inch machine screws course thread . It is easily removed and replaced with hand tools .

    It is almost like any other HEI distributor , except if original it has an extra plug ( weatherpack connector ) for the spark computer under the dash .

    I replaced mine with a 70's HEI distributor .

    Yes. Replaced however, does not mean good.

    Aftermarket ignition stuff is bad about not working, straight out of the box.
