HEI Distributor

I've put a modified 292 in my '70 Blazer in place of the original 250. I'm running a HEI distributor off a 1976 GM something. This setup, though, has an external coil that mounts with the side cover bolts. Module in the distributor is the same as used in the HEI with coil built into the distributor. I'd like to get some applications that used this setup in case I have to get a replacement coil. No one seems to know what it went on. One distributor maker didn't even know this style existed. Tried searching using the distributor number, but nothing shows up for it. Thanks for comments and thoughts.

I have seen that coil on Chevy 4.3 V-6 in Astro vans and pickups from the 90's

There should be a part number on the distributor housing that should give you some applications.


Another quality post.

That system was used on 75-77 model 6 cyl. 250 & 292 engines.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

He is asking for COIL. [amazon.com]
The application is as said: 75-77 C10 with 292, pointless ignition. Search any website 1976 C10 292...ignition coil. Click. [oreillyauto.com]

You could buy a 78 and up internal coil type distributor. $67 complete. Those coils are $8. It is used on a whole lot more years, so easier to find on the road.
