I ultimately want to restore my 350 back to its original form.  I currently have a crane XR700 ignition, Holley 4150, and edelbrock rpm intake.

I have a 4MV quadrajet (needs rebuilding), i am on the hunt for a 3905393 intake and I found a lead on a 1111168 distributor that will be restored for me. 

When going back to points, is it as simple as swapping distributors, removing the XR700 components, and dialing everything in or is there more to it?

What do you mean by original form? Stock appearing or numbers matching?

In addition to Big Iron's question, did you save the original resistor wire to be used with the stock distributor?

Mostly stock appearing as I think I got the numbers down that I need to search for.  Basically, once I acquire the Points distributor, can I just remove the current one and drop this one in? What else must be added or removed to make it operational?  

Thanks

 If you have the resistor wire intact and a stock type coil (2 wires), then it should work fine poviding the distributor is properly indexed.

Do you have the correct 4MV carb for your application? You did not give a #.
