    The modules are the same as the GM distributor??

    (More) The reason I asked this is because I can't find the modules ( except for Ford type) on their site...

    The first post has a link to the Ebay listing and there you can find a "Visit the Store" link on the right hand side of the Ebay listing

    I had the same questions. I looked on ebay, and found a replacement cap and rotor, but not the module. It seems unlikely that they would be available at parts stores, so if I were to purchase the distributor, I would want to travel with a spare cap, rotor, and module. I don't really mind points and condenser, but my delco dizzy is pretty worn, and the cost to rebuild is higher than this replacement. A little hotter spark is a nice thought also.

    I have a couple of questions about this item. 1) Are the cap and rotor a standard part or only from CRT? 2) Is the module easily available? 3) Do I need access to a dist. machine to set up?. Thanks -Jim

    I would be interested to hear what the numbers look like if someone runs one of the new distributors on a distributor machine. Bud

    If you run less static distributor advance the performance response will be "less." A 20 degree mechanical spread over static setting is a good zone for performance off the starting line under load. Take your car to the track and log your timing performance settings for best tune. Let the performance time slips make the call on the settings you use. Hope this helps.

    Wondering why you ran with the stop .If you are using the same distributor that I bought Running with out the bushing gives more centrifugal advance so you could run less initial
    Thanks

    Made the HEI install on a test engine stand and no issues on install or start up. Went with the light gold spring and gold bushings for quick mechanical advance off idle. Nice and steady control timing at 2500 rpm timing. Set the static advance at 10 degrees and recorded a mechanical advance of 20 degrees for 30 total. So a 12 would give the ideal 32 degrees mechanical. Like the quick ramp up of the timing. On the wires go with any snap fit spiral core 8 mm size and cut the lengths required.

    Excellent point, Joe.
    The only reason I tossed some info up there was in response to the hardness question.
    You are also correct that you have to know both components hardness number to get good life.
    And to add... The hardness numbers have to be different. You cannot have the two components at the same hardness level.
    That causes galling, and will destroy both components.
    I have no clue as to the hardness of these items. But the buyer needs to know what he/she/it starts with and adds compatible pieces.

I have no idea about Rockwells, but do know the OEM one is surprisingly soft. Seems most here are just out to bash the new distributor, but maybe we ought to wait till someone actually tests one. <snip>

    If parts for the new CRT distributors are readily available, then I don't see a reason not to use them as the price is right. Bud
