Need quick advice on my Prestolite replacement options...
This is for my '77 CJ-7 with the 258 I-6. The vacuum advance has crapped out on my Prestolite distributor and I need to do a quick/cheap, 2-days-before-Christmas distributor fix to get it back up to highway speed quickly. Of the billions of threads i have read on HEI-vs-Team Rush-vs-every conceivable module, it comes down to this---I don't want to bite off the whole Team Rush/MSD module process at this moment, but I don't want to buy stuff that I'll just throw away in a few weeks when I have the time to do it. If I buy a Motorcraft-Duraspark distributor for a 1979 CJ-7 (258 I-6) and a gasket,can I just reuse a stock ignition module for an 80's CJ that I happen to have laying around? Can the plug wires and coil from my '77 also be reused?
Thanks.... lots of great upgrade options on here, but with family coming into town and all my cash spent on Christmas gifts, I just need to get it back on the road at the moment.
Currently an '86 CJ-7 and a '77 CJ-7 Golden Eagle---#4 and 5 following a '01 Sahara, '90 Sahara, and '85 CJ-7....
