What do i need to get going sbc dist.

All right guys what i've got is an accel distributer 43107A I bought it cheap. it

has a mechanical tach drive and two wires running out. it came with plug wires

and a super coil for 75 dollars. what i need to know is how to switch from a

pointsdistributer to this. Or to know if it;s not worth it. The only ting thats got

me worried is that it didn't come with a module box and there like 200$. Any help

OK, follow me closely, please, I am going to describe ywo different Accel dists that appear the same from the outside.

First operation, pull the cap off the dist.

Take a look inside and see if there are two sets of points and a points cam. There should be two distinct point wires, one from each set of points to outside the dist, then, a ways down one of the two wires, a connector. both wires should go to a ring terminal at their ends, ONE ring terminal. There should also be a condenser on the outside of the dist, its one wire going to one set of the points only

If so, that dist is a replacement dual point Corvette dist made eons ago.

The other type is an electronic system, and will appear different inside.

In this system, there will be a magnetic pickup, only one, should be black, looks like an oval racetrack sitting on its end, with a steel bar in its center. That would be a magnetic pickup for electronic ignition. It should have two wires off one end of the oval, going out to a two wire connector, if it is still there. In the center of the dist, there would also be a star wheel with 8 projections.

Which one do you have, please.
