Stock?

Get a 034 Bosch Mexican vacuum/mechanical advance distributor and don't waste the money on a MSD.

MODERATORS NOTE: caps off please.

Overkill for a stocker.

I'd go with Bosch distributor of your choice, Bosch Coil, Bosch Wires, Bosch plugs. Petronix or Compufire module if you don't want to mess with points.

Keep the above in good condition and it'll never let you down...
