Electronic Dizzy- will it fit...???

Hi, just thought I would wander over "to the dark side" to ask a question for a mate. Will a dizzy out of a later windsor (1985 F series) fit an earlier 302?

The oil pump drive looks longer. Will it still fit, or can you trim the end off, or is it a 100% no-go? Any info appreciated, thanks.

Re: Electronic Dizzy- will it fit...???

easiest way is to have both dizzys side by side.
I suggest swaping the drive gears over if the electric dizzy is out of a roller cam engine. and if you are using the inductive type dizzy use in conjuction with a XF ignition module. there should be three wires earth and two triggers. Ussually there is a purple and an orange wire. connect both the orange and black wire to earth and the purple to the trigger on the module. I have put a factory ford electric dizzy to my early windsor though I am not sure what year it is it fitted with very little trouble and has vastly improved the performance of the enigine.

Side by side the most noticeable difference is the length of the shaft....... The dizzy is a TFI (I think). I all for just making it fit, but my mate is a bit of a skeptic!!
