I've got one of Bubbas converted Chevy dizzys in my deuce roadster, seems to work really good and wasn't very expensive. I know in this electronic world points are supposed to be obsolete but they sure work sweet!

Added to the issue of the fubar'ed dist tabs on the Rocky33 I bet some of the issues could have been solved by Jim........broken rotors, burnt points,timing that wouldn't stay etc...........wish I knew about him back then!

HaHa, best of luck. That cam grind is locked deep in the Tardel/ Cochran vaults.

Great audio on the video but I would like to hear the idle of the car from the back longer, maybe about 5 minutes worth or so that way I can just keep my headphones on at work.

Note for those without distributor machines...my do it yourself crab tester would handle the analytical issues of this distributor: Lack of decent correlation between gap and dwell on individual point units would disclose Chinese point syndrome, lack of proper total dwell if individual points work right would show the damaged point plate.
The engine itself with a timing light can handle many of the duties of a distributor machine in checking out curve, once you know what to look for...
But nothing will save us if it's true that Echlin and Standard are moving to Chinese points...

It a true Hot Rod. The sound of that things gave me chills and the look of it flushes all the pigment from my flesh. Then the film actually almost made me piss myself laughing when the credits started to roll. It's the way I like to start my mornings to say the least.

Believe me, you do not want the olives. If you want comparable heat just lick an exhaust manifold right after you shot the car off. On second thought, Leave it running, and at wide open throttle. That would probably be more comparable.
