I am trying to find out if a GM Electronic ignition distributor will fit in a 69 Chevelle with a Big Block without hitting the fire wall. If anyone has been down this road before let me know what your results were. Thanks Phil

Woj,

It fit on mine. I ultimately chose an MSD distributor for my application. The HEI worked fine though

I used the Pertronic's Ignitor in my stock distributor and everything fits great. Can't even tell the difference by looking. Check out my "how to" at:

There is a LOAD of info concerning the Ignitor in the "Team Chevelle" archives. Check it out.

If you're talking about a GM HEI dist, they fit a BB Chevelle no problem. Mine had one on it when I got it. I can't imagine anything larger than an HEI. von

Thanks for the feedback on this question. I'll take a look at the other info that is available as well. Thanks again. Phil

For stock appearance and electronic ignition, use a stock, vacuum advance, point type dist and add a PerTronix conversion unit plus a hi output coil such as an MSD Blaster 2 or PerTronix Flame Thrower--40,000 volts. It's all TOTALLY contained inside the dist cap and takes up less space than an HEI.
But don't misunderstand me, the HEI is a great dist.
