Re: Just bought new motor!!! Need some advise.

Man you litterly stole all them good parts for that price.

You say a Roller; Hydraulic or Solid ?

I don't think you will have any hood clearance issues with any Intake or Carb combinations with a 3rd Gen SBC a 1st GEN if that's what you're putting it in.

If your not running a CD Module and running the car on the street, I recommend the Mallory MBI Breakerless Distributor with Vacuum Pod and a Good Hi-Voltage Coil. The distributor has the small cap and works singular with or without a CD Module. If it's a strip only toy then you will only need the mechanical advance model without the Vacuum Canister.
