My dizzy on my 1977 FJ40 is chewing itself to shreds. I’m in Moab and I need to get back home to Idaho or to my Parents in Colorado. Does anyone know where I can get a working dizzy ASAP? The local shops don’t carry any (not that I’m surprised at that).
Still got the factory 2F. It currently has a Mallory magnetic dizzy.
If you can help or have ideas, feel free to call or text me. 208 93 11 409

Proffitts cruisers isn't far but it's the weekend. Try the rising sun 4x4 forum. They might have someone out that way. The other option is to buy one online and have it overnighted.

At one time the were some folks running Chevy in-line 6 cyl distributors from I think, Man-a-fre. Might be an available option if you can find one near by.

Other opinions on this encouraged.

I was able to get a factory dizzy with a new cap and rotor. Does anyone know how to rewire to use the MSD box with the factory dizzy? I don’t have the factory igniter anymore to my knowledge. I don’t know much about wiring or ignition.

I think Proffitt's is in Orchard city. I've never been to Proffitt's but orchard city is only about 45 minutes from Grand junction.
I broke my pinion on find and things. It was an all day trip to chase the third member from Proffits I was thankful for them though
