I am considering swapping out my points distributor on my '72 wagon for a later model Duraspark. Does anyone know a quick and easy way to do this? I had thought about getting one for, say, an '81 Fairmont w/a 250 and mock up the wiring with a hidden box. Might have to swap the coils as well.

I just dislike points on a daily driver, and am trying to get the most out of my six.

Great!! I didn't think they made them for a lowly 6.

Glad to see they make them, but I too am surprised frankly.

Actually, just checked - Mallory makes the vacuum advance Unilite distributor for all the standard six's.

A much more expensive solution, but it is nice to know they offer them!

the mallory units are great...i have installed more than one. the oem units don't get proper lube  in long service and wobble and need to be rebuilt. Napa sells rebuilts fairly cheap. Get one of those and a pertronix unit(and the matching coil). NEARLY AS GOOD,
