You dont, because then you would lose spark advance - you use a Duraspark
II dist.. Used in mid 70's to mid eighties small blocks.

You CAN use the TFI coil, however...

here's a good source of info.

This will keep the stock look to your engine, if that's something you're
after.

If I was buying a whole ignition system, I don't think I'd fart around with
used parts or even NOS stuff. MSD, Mallory and others can supply you with
what you need to make a pretty painless installation...

I went with the Pertronix Ignitor II, which goes inside the stock
housing and keeps the original look. VERY easy install - 15 minutes
and done. Just a slight wire change. And you can either remove the old
wire or leave it in place to keep the original look.

Like the brands mentions, I find it is doing a good job. Some may be
better tan Pertronix, but I'm happy with it. I added the Pertronix
Flamethrower coil, and an 8 mm wire set to match.

Pertronix and the others do make a complete distributor you can drop
in... for a lot more bucks : 0 ) than an upgrade kit.

Re: 87 to 67 distributor

What's the reason for installing an '87 distributer? If you're going with
fuel injection the I'd say yes but if you keep the non-roller cam you'd need
to install a cast iron distributer gear on it otherwise your cam will lunch.
