    Default Question on swapping out to E-12 80

    I've cleaned the inside of the distributor up good and lightly sanded the tips of the rotor and the magnets. Should I put dielectric grease on anything inside? I have a new button and cap. Thanks for any replies.

    All I can say is Wow! Fire jumps from the end of the plug wire boot to the tip of the plug almost 1/4". Before I did it I checked and I had to have the boot over the tip to fire the plug. Raining now so I can't do any burnouts but I'll do one in my living room tonight. Thanks for the Tech Tip Blue!

    You can put the 77 distributor on the 72, but you'll need an HEI or something like it to trigger the spark.
