Hello all. I have an 81 and I want to replace my stock distributor with one that has a normal vacuum advance  I'm getting rid of the computer in the car. Does anyone know what distributor I can use and where to purchase it. I already removed the air pump and other items. Thanks for the help.

Just about any SB chevy distributor will work. Then it's just how much you want to spend & if you want mechanical advance or total electronic. This is a good distributor...you can also get a decent one for less then $100.00

Summit is a good place to start & they have great customer service & can answer any questions you may have...let us know what you decide on. You don't need to spend a fortune if you're keeping the engine basically stock.
