Can you use a distributor out of a 1972 350 chevy c10 and use it in a 1983 chevy 350 block

Not impossible, but bad idea. The old distributors used coils that maxed out at about 12k volts. The distributors after about 1975 were electronic and put out as much as 40k volts to ignite leaner mixtures. Also to timing advance systems were electronically controlled and the old ones were vacuum and mechanical. I don't think it is impossible, but I doubt it would ever pass tailpipe inspection, plus you will take a considerable performance hit.

Has no distributor - electronic ignition !
The electronic ignition system does not use the conventional distributor and coil. The ignition system consists of the following components/circuits:
Eight ignition coils

Eight ignition control (IC) circuits

Two ignition control modules (one per cylinder bank)

Camshaft position (CMP) sensor

Crankshaft position (CKP) sensor A

Crankshaft position (CKP) sensor B

Related connecting wires

Powertrain control module (PCM)

Is their naybe and other distributor that i can modfy to fit on a 1199cc uno engin

You don't have enough information. What model is the car, does it have a point breaker ignition or is it electronic. Why do you want to modify the distributor?
There are electronic ignition kits available to fit to your existing points breaker ignition, so no need to fit another distributor.

No spark to sprk plugs

Your distributor is basically a camshaft position sensor. You don't install it haphazardly just so the number 1 wire on the cap is where the rotor is in the distributor.

The engine has to be a TDC on the Compression Stroke when you install the distributor and the rotor has to be in a certain position. Read the attachment.

No spark

replace the coil. Check the operation of the distributor and condenser in the distributor. that is if you don't have an electronic distributor.. Replace the module in the distributor if you have.

I have a 1975 Mustang 302 V/8. the distributor has points and condensor. The manual shows electronic distributor. What have I got???

if it has a carburator, it should have points and a condensor. if it's fuel injected, it should be electronic.

Where is the distributor located for a saturn 2000?

i have had 4 saturns and none of them ever had a distributor. they have an electronic ignition system. you will find 4 spark plugs, and two coils. Each coil has two plug wires each, and the coils are mounted on top of an electronic ignition module.

I am trying to find out what the black box with four plugs next to the engine in my 2004 Chevy Aveo is? It is similar to a distributor cap but book says Aveo does not have a distributor cap?

Does it have large wires which go to the spark plugs? If so in a way it is a distributor cap but not in the same way that the old distributor caps worked. It is an electronic distributor of the spark and is triggered electronically instead of mechanically. Less chance for problems and more precise. It also makes it easier to advance spark and do other things which will get you better gas economy. Let me know if you need anymore help.


Thanks for using FixYa
