You might take a look at the later tie rods...85ish?  4wd?  The tapers on the tie rods are the same.....I'm about 99% sure on that.  Their adjustable, I'm just not sure they're quite long enough.  

 

If they aren't long enough how would they work?  Or am I misunderstanding what you are saying?

I run a pertronix now, switched from dual points same as you.  I have an el dizzy w/matchbox sitting on the shelf.

 

I run 12BTDC at idle.

Yeah that could work too.  I have JB weld, so just fill it up, let it dry and then drill/tap the knob to except the new cable?

Shit ton of trips to HD for boards this weekend.  Bunch of 12' footers in the back makes for strange drive.
