What to do, what to do....

Well I have NO problem ditching the points in this dump truck. Zero sentimental value... The fact that it has no tilt nose my sway my decision. The thing is a real SOB to work on under the hood.

The distributor has this 1/4 inch line that runs to the carb, possibly vacuum or pressure for the governor'd Holley.

I tore down the carb mentioned in this thread:
Holley Carb GMC truck List 6929 info needed

It's a pretty complex little booger. It appears to have an OIL capacity on the topside of 2 of the 3 diaphragms. Strange....

If anybody has messed with these or knows how the hell it works, please post up.

Here's what I may do. I have a nice gently used Holley 3310 750 on the shelf. Also I have a spare HEI that will need a going through. I might just get a rev limiter module for the HEI and bolt on the 3310 and call it 'good'.. What do you guys think?
