1968 C-10 BB chevy Swap

Hello folks: swapping out my Chevy SB for a 454 BB and would like to run the DUI HEI distributor for performance. My first ? is any clearance issues with firewall and has anyone had any experience with these distributors, I read good things about them. Thanks for looking.

Should be fine, assuming 2WD. The only thing I don't like about those distributors is the big DUI sticker (sounds like Driving Under the Influence!).

Remember to run a full 12V switched ignition to it, don't use the existing resistor points wire.

Thanks Dave. It is 2 WD. my main concern was firewall room with an HEI ASET UP. I am using the CPP Bb motor mounts they sell
