there are two different sizes, they changed it so you can't use a point dizzy in an electronic dizzy block.

Is the block from an XD/XE? They usually have the smaller hole where the dizzy fits into the block.

Re: dizzy whats wrong???

do u have it lined up with the oil pump drive? if the dizzy came out of that motor it will go back in. setup the timing and turn the crankshaft over with a 15/16 socket, go about half a turn clockwise and the dizzy will align with the oil pump drive and drop down.

if the dizzy is new to the car,if its a late block using an early dizzy u can have them machined by any competent workshop. the od needs to be machined down 1mm, so .5mm each side
