My original distributor hold down prong broke off. I guess that is what you would call it. The two prongs that hold the distributor and keep it from turning. That is why I put a new one on. Maybe the same thing happen to the PO.
No not defective just the wrong part.
I may be wrong but it is worth a shot.
It will not cost you anything, heck you may be able to swap them in the parking lot of the parts store. If it does not work swap them back.
If Siva283 can find his spare it is from a 95 too.

I think I have located it Tuck I will know this evening. I realized I am an idiot. I am 99% sure I never took it off the old engine yet witch I didnt check. Its brand spanking new too. It was part of the trouble shooting process I never did get that engine started because it had a broken exhaust valve that punched a hole in the number 2 pistion. Before I learned this the dizzy was one thing that came up and I replaced it since the old one had 260,000 miles on it. So this one has about 15 mins of cranking on it and thats it. I just gotta remember to take my half inch wrench with me to the storage locker

Worth a try.
Like I said it is a long shot, but it did work for me.

Ok. So finally for the axle back in and took it for a spin. Drive it about 30 miles and it ran great for about half of it...then got worse and worse on the way back home. To the point that I was in second gear on a flat road I'll try to get the distributor swapped out this weekend and hopefully that will fix it...

So far I've done the following:

New plugs
New wires
New cap and rotor
New distributor (93) model
New coil
New air filter
New fuel filter

Any ideas besides putting a 95 model distributor in it?
