Who would want one?  lol   HEI stands for Herniated Epileptic Ignition. Seriously, I think a Pertronix kit would be a lot better. My 2 cents.

"Dave's Small-Body HEI" can convert your existing "small" distributor to HEI if that's what you really want.  Smiley

John,

I just got done installing a new GM crate motor in my '69.  The HEI is too big for the firewall without modification.  I used an MSD Ready-To-Run Street Pro-Billet from Jeg's (121-8360).  This is the 2nd one I have purchased (two different cars  Smiley) and have had no problems whatsoever with lots of clearance.  Hope this helps.   Cool

I ended up going with the Pertronix Set-up - Dist & Coil - working great and priced well

I agree the pertronix set up is too easy and works great

On the car that I own and the one before that , I put an HEI distributor that came from a `75 camaro,  on both cars I have to bang the fire wall to make room for the distributor.

I installed a complete Accell self contained HEI unit (had a GM HEI in it ) in my 67 Camaro with a 355/4sp with no firewall issues.

In response to who'd want one. It's a neat, complete self contained unit, put it in, add 12volts and a wire for the tach and your done. They work great for mild to moderate engine and are reliable.
