should I use a different spark plug, if so witch one?

Asked by: jkpp
No, you can still use your standar spark plug with this distributor.
Answered by: Rusty B
Date published: 2018-06-28

Is this a 4 pin or a 7/8 pin distributor?

Asked by: 00jagger
These use a 4 pin module.
Answered by: Jon Jegs Tech
Date published: 2018-03-20

Do you sell a replacement cap, module and coil for this distributor? Can gm hei parts be used? I’d be using this on a Jeep I take into the mountains and I want to be able to carry spare parts or know what parts I can find locally in an emergency.

Asked by: Jpjeep
Yes, this does use factory GM style parts.
