    What is a good distributor to change over to? Have a 53 Ford running a Holley 390cfm with stock distributor.

    GMC Bubba on here does a converted SB chev distributor, machined and recurved, I think you send him your Drive gear, and he puts it all together and sends it with a bottle of hot sauce. I would do that. i like hot sauce.

    While your looking. Get inside your distributor, and tighten the advance springs. They are attached to an adjustable post on one end. Take a pair of needle nose pliers and turn the posts until it is in the tightest position. Will make your flatty run a heck of a lot better, till you decide what to put in it.

    Bubba has the hot ticket. You will be happy you did the swap.

    Bubba's is the way to go, better yet come to the Indy Road Rockets Rumble Car Show tomorrow - he is going to put on a seminar and will teach you all the facts.
