    I haven't been on in a long time. Family things and all...
    Anyway I'm back at getting my flathead built.
    I have a 48 distributor that I want to use a crab cap on.
    Which cap? 42? Are all crab caps the same as far as fitment?
    I see crab caps on ebay but no real designation as to what they fit.
    Which rotor? Same 42? I know there are differences there.
    Then I need to convert from the "bail" to the side clips.
    Mac's Auto (only place I can find them) shows 2 clip sets for the cap. Which one of those do I use?
    There is one set for 42 and another for 46-48. I'm assuming since I have a 48 dizzy I need the 46-8 clips.
    It would be nice to get the right stuff the first time.
    If this has been discussed before, a link to the thread would be great too.
    BTW I'm putting a Pertronics kit in it.
    And some other goodies on top.
    4" stroke and 3 5/16" bore
    Scat crank, H beam rods, hot cam, etc.
  2. Ask Bubba,he'll get you set.
