Early Dizzy Conversion

These are some pics of my DOAF Autolite points dizzy to a reluctor/pickup type.

I used a D5TE dizzy as the donor, but I also have an E5TE which appears the same. Both these are Motorcraft.

If you have an early 289/302 you will know the drive gear and the shaft are smaller than the it's successors. This is something to watch out for if you go aftermarket HEI distributor.

This a is a one hour job. It requires you remove the condensor, points, advance plate, stationary plate and rotor cam. You simply replace what's missing with the donor parts. You will need a rat tail file to make a slot for the wiring in the housing and a grommet to seal the old wiring hole.

Assembly stage 1

Assembly stage 2

Assembly stage 3

Assembly stage 4

Assembly stage 5

Re: Early Dizzy Conversion

Yeah I stayed with the reluctor type given the historic problems with DurasparkII TFI.

I will either run it into a Bosch ignition module or a Denso amplifier, both of which I have; probably the Denso one for reliability

Re: Early Dizzy Conversion

F Series truck, but they were quite common in the early seventies in the US.

here's a cleveland version:

and an even cheaper one (don't know if it has the large cap and spacer as part of the deal though):
