Points to HEI conversion small block chevy


Recommended Posts

 I have a '67 Chevy C50 farm truck I've been thinking of converting to HEI from the original points. Not sure what I need to do it. I've heard it's easy just want to get everything I need before I start. Any input would be great. Thanks.

I just changed a distributor on a 96 suburban 454 original wore out it was plastic too, put an aluminum one on from rock auto. Whoever changed intake gaskets before dropped the distributor in 2 teeth off, can't believe it still ran ok. Always had a code for random misfire, I thought the timing chain was stretched out. Got new one  in the right way after doing lower intake gaskets again and it runs perfect now no check engine light anymore.

Yup. Keyed 12V to distributor. The module hooks to the inside plug. Then IIRC there is BATT terminal for keyed power. Then there is tach terminal if you want to hook a tachometer.

 There is a tach in the dash, I assume it's driven by electrical signal. Being it's a '67 I believe that's how it was done. This is just something I've been considering just to make it more reliable and easier to start. The truck sits alot but I do have some plans for it this summer. I want to put in another gravel driveway, haul some grain and some other odd hauling jobs. For what ever reason I'm kind of find of this old truck. Don't know what it is but I like messing with it. Maybe the nostalgia of 1967? I don't know. Lol

 Considering swapping out the 2bbl carb and manifold for a 4bbl as well. A buddy has a 600 Holley that can be had cheap just need to find a manifold.
