Without 'O' rings (stock distributors primarily do not have the 'O' rings), some oil can get by the O.D. of the lower distributor body and the I.D. of the block. If this clearance is excessive, then the oiling to the passenger side of the block will be lessened. The 'O' rings tend to 'seal' off the clearances.

The way the answer in post 2 was written, the poster seems to indicate the o-rings aren't optional.

Hey Pepi......its hear not here....maybe the term dizzy is just as lame as your inability to use the correct word in the correct context

But I pointed out he didīnt have to use if he didīnt want too in post #3.
If his block aint chamfered he has no option.
I just plonked my MSD in today, sans O rings, and the fit was perrrfecto.

The lube packet provided by MSD had pooped over the Atlantic so Im using
pre lube.

Can't you just here Austin Coil saying, "hay pass me the two dizzies and we can fire this thing" or is this one of those Hottroders terms, dumbing it down, like Hotrodders terms for dummies kind of thing.

Maybe a pole here..

(probably used more on the internet than in regular conversation between two knuckle-draggers - - er uh, i mean mechanics )
