Default HEI dist for 5.0

Anyone think this would be a descent dizzy for a carbed roller 302? Should the msd 6a work it?

Yes it will be a good one and MSD will work but you will have to change the gear to a bronze gear.

you don't think the hardened steel gear would hold up with the roller? It looks pretty nice for $100 bucks brand new and shipped. but 100 bucks for a brand new billet dist sounds kinda cheezy to me. I may try it out anyway. im gonna rebuild my motor and convert to carb setup, so it may be a while before i get to use it.

Do you think i should go with the dura spark style dizzy, or go HEI with this one?

When I converted mine I ordered an MSD Pro Billet Distributor which also came with a steel gear and I had to change it. The gear is gonna run you between $30-$50 depending on what brand you get

cool.. thanx! i'll swap the gear out before i drop it in then to save some problems. Back to my other question:

Should i go with this HEI unit for $100 bucks, or go with the old ford duraspark style distributor for like $140? They have about the same statistics on paper, but which one do you think would be better?

Well, there is advantages and disadvantages to both. The HEI has the coil in the cap and and aftermarket HEI coils are more expensive than a Blaster 2 coil. But the HEI terminals are spread out more. It's really just a personal preference. I personally liked my MSD disrtibutor with the mechanical advance.

Will my MSD TFI Coil work with either of them? also i wanted the vacum advance to get a little bit of fuel economy from it. I Think the dura spark dizzy had adjustable mechanical AND vacum advance.

So my TFI coil will work the the dura spark? I may as well spend the extra 40 bucks on the dura spark instead of the extra cap peice since i already have the MSD Blaster TFI unit.

Yes, it will work with the duraspark. The blaster 2 is supposed to be better on a carb application for some reason but I can't think of why right now but I know for a fact it will work.

This will show you how to hook the MSD 6A up to just about any distributor.
