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.

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.

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