anthonyc1 You arent going to find that grease just anywhere. THe parts store dosent have it,you are on the side of the highway, just wipe off what you can from the old one with your finger and smear it on the new module or use the grease in the box of the new module ,which isnt really the right kind.It will get you where you want to go.

350 backfires thru tailpipe

Here is an article to read to test and repair HEI distributors. Pay attention to the heat sink compound used under the ignition module.

anthonyc1 If this is a GM HEI style distributor the module is under the rotor. 2 plugs and two nuts an its off. Just get one in a parts store for a 76 Camaro with 350 put it in the same way with little grease under it and all done. If its the coil its right on the cap cover comes off with 2 screws then 4 more under there holding the coil on.

He said it only backfires after warming up on road driving about 60 mph

Is the module the same as a rotor.

350 backfire thru tailpipe

Hi Guys
My grandson is currently driving his 70 Camero to Florida. He just called me and said his 350 engine is backfiring again. Let me back-up a little and tell you what happened about 2 months ago . His Camero started to backfire and he took it to a garage and they changed the distributor cap and wires and it seemed to fix the problem. All of a sudden its backfiring again. Any suggestions? Keep in mind its backing thru tailpipe. HELP!
