I have a 78 280 with a Y44 V8. How did you get the GM hei distributor to fit in it? I've been looking for parts for the longest time now. If I can just throw a gm one wire in that would solve so many problems. Any help would be very appreciated.

@Boondocker, you are aware that this thread is 15 years old, correct?  The OP hasn't been on the forum in a very long time; however, did you read their post on Feb 2, 2008?  It pretty much answers your question regarding fitment:


"The clearance between the distributor and the intake is the issue. The bolt hole nearest the distributor had to be machined off and a new smaller diameter ear welded on that would use an allen head bolt. Not sure about shaft length issues on the distributor but I know the gear is the metric one from the original distributor."
