Another question this time about Tii dizzy

So i just commmited to buying a mechanical advance dizzy in a few days and am wondering if there will be a noticable difference in the way it drives? The reason that i committed to this is because i bought a pertronix this morning and as i was installing it, the screw that holds down the points stripped out its corresponding threads. I figured that instead of fixing it, i might as well just replace it... Its old and ive had problems with it before...

Cheers,

Jonas

This is why the total advance is less than on a 2002 dizzy, and it advances quicker. A Tii dizzy is not necessarely an "upgrade". It is simply made to be used with "hotter" engines. Using a Tii distributor on a stock 8.5 motor will simply kill the performance, or if you adjust total advance to be similar to a 2002 dizzy, then you will have way too much advance at idle.

My mechanic replaced my vacum advance dizzy on my 68 1600 with a mechanical advance years ago when the old one gave up the ghost and I've never noticed any difference.
