what do you think of this distributor from Bav autosport? it is asking for $420, which is steep in my opinion.

ID48XS Distributor - High Performance Mechanical Advance $419.95

This is for my 76 2002 (without air pump and all the related misc stuff).

Do you think I can find somewhere cheaper and is as good as this high performance dist?

Thanks.

anywhere from $5 to $30 at a boneyard... OR 2002AD will sell you one in good order for roughly $90 plus shipping... look in the FS section here.

$420 is steep. Look into distributorless ignition for about that cost! It's just a mechanical/tii advance dizzy

as per C.D.isel jetting prescription, it suggested a new mechanical advance distributor. That is where I came up with Bav autosport with their mechanical advanced distributor? any suggestion or opinion?

Any NEW mechanical advance dizzy is going to run you the same $420 + shipping. You don't NEED a NEW dizzy though. Do you have a used one? A used one that measures up within tolerances, meaning the inside shaft play and the advance works, etc. a used unit that measures up will work fine.

I (respectfully) disagree about vacuum advance-

when it works right, it will increase your fuel economy

AND power- under light to part throttle,

you really can take way more advance.

Now, the emission version is heinous, I agree,

but a properly sorted vacuum advance is

really a good thing on a street car with a mild cam.

My opinion,
