you have to get BFH to bend it in just a little bit at the top of dist....unless its the smaller dist.....you dont have to bang alot just enough to make it clear use a body shop dolly it will make it real smooth instead of hammer marks

Go with a MSD I thought this would not be a problem for clearance.

If you can gain the clearance to work, heat up the firewall a little, then put a spare piece of exhaust pipe where you need the clearance. It keeps the hammer marks on the pipe and gives you a nice smooth vertical "channel" for the rear of the cap and wires.

Has anybody used one of the ones on eBay? ( Item number: 380064647326 )

Brand new. HEI Distributor for $57 dollars shipped. Too good to be true?

a stock style HEI will clear any 73 and newer A, G, F,or B body.
this includes the aftermarket chinese junk that you can buy for under $100 all the way up to the $500 MSD HEI.
