    Need a distributor for the V6 conversion. Engine came with breaker points. Electronic ignition would be nice to have. Noticed that the, 1975 and 1976 distributors use the small cap single vacuum (Ec-1? electronic control first generation). 1977 (Ec-2) and later has the two piece cap. Choice of single vacuum (no retard) or dual vacuum. What is the prefered distributor? I know no vacuum retard, single vacuum. Limited as to what is available, as will have to buy rebuilt. Do not have a core. Converting the breaker points to Pertronix is the last choice. So what distributor to buy? Looks like Oriely Auto Parts has them. Rock Auto is on rebuilt basis. Any other sources that have distributors? Suggestions? Thanks, project is moving along.

    Steve, also check Ebay. I think all Mustang II were single diaphram. 77-78 is the one you want.
