220 mag converted to distributor?

Postby TDezso » Wed Mar 01, 2017 4:07 pm

I remember seeing someone used an old dodge slant 6 distributor and modified it to replace the mag on a 220. Anyone have some info on this? I want to say it was water thunder that did it, but don't remember.

Quite obviously, your memory is much better than mine.
( Don't get a big head, that ain't saying much anymore! :lol: )

It appears that you are exactly correct. Here's some reading for ya:

I was searching some spark plug info and ran across a little mention of it. Now I have more unanswered questions. Lol. I might just have to take a ride to melbourne and pick his brain one day about it.
