Hi to all out there in fe-fc land, just wanted to share what may be some very useful information, after hunting around for hei distributor options for my cranky grey i came across new small cap hei distributors on ebay to suit the stovebolt chevy sixs, i managed to get my hands on a standard stovebolt dizzy to compare to a grey and was pleasantly suprised that the distance from the oil pump tang to the dizzy drive gear is excacly the same

The chevy stovebolt dizzy is somewhat taller, but the housing is also the same as a grey where it goes into the block, havnt bought one to try as yet but should work, there is two different type of stovebolt dizzys dependent on year model and cubic capacity, one has a flange to clamp to like a red motor dizzy and the other (235 type) takes a bolt on clamp like our beloved greys

This then lead me to (gasp) toyota distributors, the 2f and 3f toyota petrol engine is basically a copy of the stovebolt and some of the old school lancruiser guys are using stovebolt hei distributors in their petrol sixs, found on ebay yesterday new 2f electronic distributors for around $80-$100 they are only a low voltage dizzy that still works with a points coil though

. . . except (I thought) that the Chev 6-cylinder distributors have a fixed breaker plate, and vacuum advance is achieved by having the diaphragm rotate the entire distributor body.  Do the replacement distributors have a vacuum advance?

Yes thats how the standard stovebolt dizzys work, the aftermarket hei small and large cap ones that ive come across on ebay have the vac advance built in and dont use the factory chev vac advance/clamp bracket, the large cap version would have no hope of fitting next to the grey sideplate

. . . the original Chev Delco-Remy distributors use the same cap, rotor and condenser as the FX Delco distributors.  But interesting that the aftermarket distributors have a better vacuum advance setup.
