    Default Chevy 350 distributor in a buick 350 or 455?

    got a brand new MSD HEI distributor set left over from a sold Chevy 350 project and wanted to know if it could be modified to fit a Buick 350 or 455.. I thought I had read somewhere that it only needed a cam gear swap to make it work. If that's the case, would that give me a choice of using it for a buick 350 or 455 with a respective gear change?

    ...would hate to have buy another chevy project just to keep from wasting it

    That chebby distributor will NOT fit into any BUICK.

    The Buick 350 and 455 engine share the same distributor but the gears have different number of teeth.
