Quite frustrated here. Searched all afternoon and can't find my answer exactly.... I pulled the distributor on my 1983 351w, shaft had significant side play, so I called the parts store. They said they only showed elec ignition type distributors. Everything I could find on the net suggests this is correct, except I pulled a friggin points type out of it. I can only assume that someone either converted it to points because it's what they had, or maybe another engine was put in it.

So, can I make the elec ign dist work by just wiring it up? Do I need to also buy a control module? Can you even make it work without an expensive conversion kit?

Honestly, I'd be just as happy if I could just find a replacement points type, but parts guy could not pull one that matched
