Hi folks. Thanks for adding me! New member to the forum and a new owner of a 1986 D21 that has been molested. I have had to replace the seats and carpet as it had been tossed due to the PO PO being a smoker and cig burns. The guy before me was in the process of converting this over to a carb from EFI and I made an adapter plate for the carb to manifold. So far it has been a major headache with "WTF did he do and why?" moments every time I turn around. Right now the only thing that is holding me up from being able to drive this thing is the distributor. The ECM controlled distributor was removed and went to the same place as the seats along with the ECM. It was replaced with an electronic distributor with a vacuum advance. The problem in the distributor is that the control module in it is bad and a bit on the spendy side which is making me consider just dropping a 302 Ford or 350 Chevy it it. This has the Z24 engine in it and I would like to just bypass all of the electronics in it and just go with a points and condenser or perhaps an electronic upgrade that will fit this distributor. I am a 30 year experienced machinist so if I could even come up with a 4 cyl point distributor I could do what machining I would need to to make this work. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.
Thanks again for the add!
