Anyone tried one of these?

Has anyone here ever tried one of these distributors from this guy? I have bought stuff from him before and its of decent quality. I just looking for first hand experience on this particular part.

Yep, got them in three cars right now, they all work great. A good step up from a worn out original or to convert from points. I'll save all the others from having to go into the rest. They don't have the "optimized" mechanical advance of some higher end distributors, but you can modify them to get the correct advance. It is not the wrong advance, just gives you too much so you set your base timing stock, 6 degrees and you are good. I haven't had any issues out of them.

Thanks Jetstang. Ive ordered the HEI for the fords from him before and they work pretty good. They are just cheap pro comp stuff.

I was at a show this weekend, and they were advertising their dist's as NOT Pro Comp, but still $50.. Don't know if they are better or worse, I haven't had an issue.
