Default Distributer

I'm looking at a 27 sedan that has had a distributer installed. How much in $ does that take away. How reliable is it? Thanks in advance.

If it runs and drives, none in my OP. As reliable as any other car equipped with a distributor.

Reliability depends on if it's an "era" distributor or a modern conversion. Replacement parts for "era" installs can be hard to come by whereas modern distributor parts are readily available. Can you post a photo of the conversion ?

I'd give that much! I think if we were betting blindly I still would win.

I think we both were asking for more info. Location is sometimes a factor also.
