Weiand 8-71 Distributor Fit

Any of you blower guys using a Weiand 8-71 on a SBC? I bought a Mallory Comp9000 distributor for mine and it wouldn't fit (hit the blower rear cover). So managed to sell it for a loss (!) and now I'm looking for another distributor. Looking at an MSD 8570 "Small Diameter", stated to be 4-3/4 inches. Well, that gets me really close but looks like the popoff valve bolts in the rear of the intake may not clear.

Anyone have the 8570 MSD who can tell me if the 4-3/4" is to the outside of the cap hold down wings or the curvature of the distributor body?

I've considered a Holly Annihilator system and their small distributor, but I see they no longer market that system, so I'm not excited about it.

Soooo, any ideas guys & gals?

Thanks, Larry

The MSD distributor should work, And i have moved the popoffs on the weiand intakes, just move the top bolt over for clearance and plug the old with a set screw.
