Some do, some don't.....Depends on how far forward the body was mounted on the frame at the factory.

I agree with Davids statement. I have seen some fit and others hit so hard it wouldn`t go in for anything. Also depends on how the body was set on the frame when it was set back on the frame after the restoration.

I checked out the Skip White $45 HEI distributor on ebay. Looks like a nice and inexpensive alternative to the other electronic distributor I've been looking at (Pertronix)

Question about the Male vs Female caps. Will my original style 90* wire boots fit onto the male posts ok? (currently using a female style cap)

I have a stock HEI in my '57 and my engine is in the stock location. Mine doesn't hit the firewall at all... is a little close. Guess I got lucky when I set my body back on my frame. :happy0030:
