I can't afford buying all original nos parts, dist., alt. starter, etc., but I can afford a restamped part. I would never pass any restamped part as original.
I'm in the same boat I'd like to put mine back original as possible but the date code thing makes mine hard- late 69 build -I just dont see much available for them. all the parts you list above are rediculous on Fleabay sorry I cant see 1k plus for a points distributor for original #s if thats the only difference is what its stamped on it
