    I was taking the metal hose off the vacuum advance on my distributor today and I noticed there was a crack in the distributor. I started messing with it and it snapped off.. oops. So now what? I have started looking at distributors online and just don't know what direction to go. There are a lot of options. Does anyone have any experience with a points eliminator distributor or had good luck with anything for a 352? Thanks

    I'm pretty sure the FE distributors will interchange 352-360-390-etc... Go get a reman for a '71 f100 from autozone for $50 and eat the $25 core.

    And I 3rd the degreaser...

    Be very careful when you pull out the old distributor---If the oil pump rod come with--- OK---if not pick up a oil pan gasket as well!!!

    why not just get a electronic that would fit a 390 and keep it all ford? I have been converting my older fords over for years and they are awesome.
