The HEI is is to tall and in the way of an aftermarket electric wiper motor I am using to replace the old vacuum motor.
One option is a MSD p/n 84891 dist. which has both a crab cap and a magnetic pick up. It requires an ignition box because it only contains a magnetic pick up (no module). More details: http://www.msdignition.com/Products/...stributor.aspx
Skip White (and possibly others) sells a small cap HEI
that's a stand alone, self contained unit.
