    I don't know what conversion you are looking for but changing a chevy distributor for a Ford flathead is nothing new. There used to be detailed explanation on how to do it yourself. They are probably still out there. I have done one for myself. Disassemble the distributor. Turn it down on a lathe and reassemble. The advance may need to be changed. The one that I did was a Mallory and the advance was o.k. for me.

    One of the places showing the conversion.

    Jim has treated me quite well so far. I was only trying to get contact information. The info I had seems to be no longer useful. As you can see we were able to make contact and i still have no complaints.
     
  7. Guys' ...Put it to Bed, it's been Addressed , Handled, Understood, All is good.
    Jim is first class.. He's done Dizzy's (and lot's more) for me and my friends... Unless you walk in his shoes, don't judge...
    He is good people, human just like the rest of you.. It's a tuff world out there... were all trying to make it better and have a good time along the way. Once in a while we make mistakes... I certainly have done my fair share. Thank's to all that contributed... let's get on with it..
     
  8. Well Jim
    It seems that it is not my business And you have said you are in constant contact with him. HMMMM then why was he constantly posting over the last year????
    Seems to me a good business person would have taken care of this long ago. 2 years is a long time to wait for such a simple thing.
    It has been my experience that one Aww shit will take away a lot of Atta boys.

    I'm biased as all hell... I've used Bubba a lot and have gotten nothing but top notch work from him. So keep that in mind.... BUT, what is it to you man? Is there an ulterior motive here? I mean, as I understand it the problem has been solved and all is good. Why keep beating on Bubba?

    Are you a customer with a bad experience or?

    I feel like I'm missing something.

    Tubman, maybe you need to try to communicate with Jim again while all this is fresh in his thoughts, in private before you drag it into another thread started by someone else.
    No offense, but the subject here has been, and still is, the OP's problems with Jim.

    On a positive side, I finally just heard from Jim, and he says that my distributor is in process. As to your other comments, haven't you read all of my posts? Believe me, I contacted Jim many times before without a satisfactory response, and thought long and hard before airing this in public. As to adding to this thread, I am aware of his overall good reputation and didn't think starting another new negative thread about him would be appreciated, least of all by him. I stand by how I have handled this.

    Merlin when get your ride going we want to be the first to know about it and lots of pics too. We really enjoy what you fella's are up to over there...

    I hope your friend Christian has been communicating as you have been to Bubba. You have been very patient under the circumstances.

    Christian is totaly tired of this shit.
    Of course I will tell you what happen now.
    For me he is not the good guy...he get my money and then he don't do anything. He waste my time.
    I will not wait one year again.
    He better send back my money and I look for another Guy who like to do the job for me this winter.
    This is the only thing I need to drive my ride
