too much money?
Would this be a vacume retard or vacume advance Distributor?
Interested in any parts trades???

Parts....Not sure of any parts that I need right now besides motor mounts, new hoses and longfeilds
Tech information furnished by Jim Chenoweth
Here is the real deal on 49 state US distributors from the beginning of time.
All early - 1987 have mechanical advance. Curves vary from year to year.
Early - 1968: Xtra small distributor, vacuum advance (correctly called "non-smog", also sold as "non-USA").
>li>1969 - 1974: XS distributor, but w/ vac retard.
1975 & early 1976: small distributor, completely redesigned, very good quality points distributor. Vacuum retard.
Late 1976 & 1977: Same, but w/ vac advance
1978: redesigned w/ Med. size screwdown, waterproof cap, electronic ignition. Vacuum advance & retard.
1979 - 1980: dual diaphragm advance. One big advance stage for normal operation, small second stage for extra advance at hi-altitude
1981 - 1987 distributor body redesigned to use large cap. Same dual diapragm advance introduced in '79.
1988 - 1992 distributor redesigned w/ out advance. Distributor pickup is a crank angle sensor, advance curve is controlled by computer.
Ditto on the Jim C info, with a tiny bit more added
