I have recently noticed (on EBAY) that an HEI tach drive distributor is now available for the 55-57 Birds fitting 272, 292, and 312 engines. I have a '55 that has had the '57 style intake and 4160 Holley installed. It also has the '57 style distributor installed. I found this out the hard way when I ordered '55 ignition components and they didn't fit. My question is, does anyone have any experience installing and running one of these distributors? Was the wiring relatively easy? Does in perform well? Does the factory tach cable fit directly into the distributor? Any comments and other info would be greatly appreciated.
