can I use one out of a 121 head ? head is from a 75 e12. Is there a difference b/n the distributors for the early or late 2002's ?

TIA

the vacuum advance/retard may (will) be different. It should work OK if you time it to 1975 specs, tho. You may need to retard it just a bit, as (imho, of course) the 121 head seems to be a bit more prone to predetonation.

Really, I'm to the point where if there's something wrong with the distributor, I replace it- the things simply wear out after 30 years or so of use!

fwiw,
