re use dizy on new engine?
 
Is it ok to re use my old dizzy on a new engine if I replace the cam gear and the pickup coil?

I reused my distributor when I installed a reman'd 258.........

Sure. Make sure there is NO play in the dizzy's center shaft.
Get a top line PU coil from NAPA. The others sell china crap that's just going to die soon.

I have 2 dizzys, the one in my current engine, and the one that came off the engine I'm rebuilding. The one that came off the rebuild has some vertical play but no play from side to side. it spins freely and the bearings seem ok,

should I worry about the vertical play?

Out of the engine some will show v'play. You want "0" side play.
Make sure the advance dia. will hold vac.
