What has happened is a shortage of FYB DUAL ADVANCE DIST cores. While a SBF dist housing will work in a FYB, the actual SBF dist shaft used is too short. If you order a FYB rebuild and when pulled out of the box is actually a later SBF, just turn it back in.

There is a new DIST being made available but cost is about $500.00.

Look for a take-out from 1957 to 1964 truck. They advanced in design but will work in a retro-fit.

As we got into bed, I asked the wife if there was a chance of having sex tonight ...

As usual, the reply was, "Not likely".

"Well then, can I call a friend"?

And that's when the fight started ...

UPDATE - The doctor said I will walk again but most likely with a limp ...
