Hi All,

I've just defected from the chevelles.com site, as I just bought a 68 Camaro. Yahoo! I will be installing a BB in the next couple weeks and was looking for feedback on what the popular dist is. I have the correct motor mounts but it sounds like reg HEI may not fit. I will be running an MSD with external coil but the billet units are obviously pricey, what other options are there ? Also, will the same oil pan from chevelle fit my camaro ?

Thanks very much!:hurray:

I put a 468 out of a chevelle into my 69 camaro and it had an hei distibutor converted over to msd and it fit in my camaro without any problems and I even had a 177 blower on it. I did change it out to a pro billet one from msd later on but just because I wanted to. I didn't have to change the oil pan either...Of course I have sold the 468 and just installed a 502 :D

The HEI distributor that was on the motor had been converted from HEI to msd. Don't ask me how they did it because I don't know. No, I had no firewall clearance issues.

I'm using a Pertronix on my 502. No issues. Works for now, but later I'll likely bump up to an MSD.

Ok, so it sounds like the small cap HEI (non-unitized coil) are the ones that fit - correct ?

Have a great weekend everyone!
