if i'm correct... you should be able to use a stock distributor from a 351w out of like a ford truck late 70's -mid 80's???as long as it has the vacuum advance on it should plug into your dura spark box in the 90's they didn't have the advance it was computer controled Angry

the blue strain relief on the module is an indicator, i'd make sure that matches the model year of the car 1979 and source a 351W distributor for 1979 also

Module with the so-called blue grommet, which I have, is correct one for the 77-79 cars. If this will go to the point of actually swapping engines, definitely easiest way is to buy a correct distributor for 351W.
Thanks for the link! Useful info!
