This is the first non-IH related post on Bob’s Bad Binder.
Basically this article was on another site, and all automotive items will be moved here. These will probably be rare.
My everyday driver is a 1965 Buick LeSabre with a 300 V8. This is a great engine – I can get over 20 mpg on the highway. One of the modifications I made was to replace the point type distributor with a GM HEI out of a later model Buick 350 V8. The distributor fits correctly, but did require some slight modifications (grinding) to the intake manifold. The power, performance and starting after this modification has been tremendous. I would suggest puting an HEI in any vintage GM product if there is a direct replacement.
