I'm contemplating going distributorless on the 455 in the Skylark. Anyone do this? Methods? Tips?
I want to put a crank trigger wheel on it, the T/A timing cover comes with a place to mount a bracket for a pickup sensor. Then possibly run LS style coils on valve covers.
I would go down to at least a points distributor with no wires going to it to drive the oil pump, but does anyone know if there is a 231, 3.8L, cam sensor that can be modified (i.e. change the gear) to fit the 455 to drive the oil pump, and possibly actually act as a cam sensor in the future?
I don't need it necessarily for performance gains, but more to clean up some of the under the hood look and shorten up the plug wires and routing.
