Default WTB Tach drive distributor for '69 427 390

Looking for a vac advance distributor for my '69 big block as my current distributor does not have vac advance. Looking for an original style distributor that will fit under my stock ignition shielding. Will be doing an electronic conversion on it. Let me know what you have and a price shipped to 08724.

thanks,

Mike

This one would be an interesting challenge to restore.

Thanks for these! Iím definitely looking for something that will work from the get-go as Iím not knowledgeable about these at all. What are your thoughts on the rebuilt distributors from the big corvette parts places?

If you are not looking for a 100% correct distributor, any small or big block cast iron, tach drive, vacuum advance distributor will work. Get a hold of Lars here on the forum for his papers on timing and advance or send it to him for a rebuild and set up.

Guys, just a reminder, if you have had posts removed from this thread, you must provide an asking price when responding to a WTB thread with parts for sale, thanks.

Thanks, wasn't aware of that rule. Noted and will comply in the future.
