  1. Buying one of these compared to buying something from a vendor was not the question. I could not think of a reason why it would not fit. The shield seems to be the best guess. I actually have bought from Dave Thiebeault before if that matters.
  2. The actual fit makes more sense to me. I did not think of it as my car does not have the steel shielding installed. Thanks for the information. Here is a link to the distributor on ebay, also there are others for sale a lot of places including Studebaker International https://www.ebay.com/itm/202549607977?chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=711-117182-37290-0&mkcid=2&itemid=202549607977&targetid=1263094004306&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=9018933&poi=&campaignid=13917615559&mkgroupid=128459919281&rlsatarget=pla-1263094004306&abcId=9300613&merchantid=8298174&gclid=Cj0KCQjwvaeJBhCvARIsABgTDM5zKj0cGCAfCm7Nqt6cAXNr_uCWcqp_bDNIf4y5WiV1GrZw2bO-Tg0aAuMPEALw_wcB And another https://swperformanceparts.com/product/hei7733bk/?gclid=Cj0KCQjwvaeJBhCvARIsABgTDM4p2EdccBiI19GCB1nX0Dcfe7kOF4DOdT4VXllRv5xFUhsZQYCa5gIaAhBzEALw_wcB
  3. I see that several vendors sell a new electronic distributor for Studebaker V8's. They say for any V8 except Avanti. I'm wondering why they would not work on an Avanti? Is it just compatibility with the wiring that a little custom wiring would solve? Or is it actually a difference in the motor on the Avanti? I sure would like to know if anyone has any insight. Thanks
