Just been busy , and trying to get back to it ... I suck ... :lol: .. :thumbs:

Decided to have this head planed means that it's a turbo... even though it was well within specs of being able to use ( to the minimum [;)] ).

I've taken my Blue z around the block a few times , and love the weather !
It sounds a lot faster than it really is .... lol.

Anyways pulled out a spare EI distributor that I had laying around.
It needs the top bushing replaced along with cleaned/inspected/greased up.
E12-80 module.
I'll put this on my L24 while enjoying the weather , and roll with it in between doing the L28et stuff....
:troll:

Strange that an upper bushing would wear out with no side load like a points distributor.

When the only tool you have is a hammer every problem starts to look like a hippy.
