    Just wondering if anyone knows if I can use a small block HEI distributor to replace a big block point system distributor. I am planning to do this swap to a 366 or 400 (not sure which motor it is) out of a Chevy C50 truck. If this is possible I would also need to know the specifics involved in making the swap......thanks

    i believe that all chevy distributors are the same no matter if it's a big or small block. you will however need to change the wiring. you can either cheat and just run a hot wire to the dist. or get the proper wiring harness

  4. I know that a big block and a small block use the same one,
    but I dont know if the tall deck big block motors use the same one or not.
    Good luck.

    IF IT AINT BIG IT AINT BAD!!!!!!

    Thanks for the info. I guess the motor is actually a 350 so I shouldn't have any problems. I just assumed that all C50 trucks in 1969 had a big block of some sort, and the 350 was not an option.......thanks
