Re: [AMC-list] AMC-List--BBD Carburetors and HEI

I would jump on this offer. I ran a BBD with a swapped-in GM HEI on a 1983 Concord with 258 for a few years. It was my daughter's first car. The HEI came from a 1979 (I think) Chevy 250 I-6. I had to replace the driven gear at the tip of the HEI distributor with the gear that came off if the Concord's distributor. The electrical connections were simple, and they bypassed the computer. The installation put the BBD into a kind of an average, all-around driving setting and the stepper motors were never again operative. The Concord ran much more reliably afterward, eliminating the hesitation (and sometimes killing the engine) on starting from a traffic light. It passed emissions better with the HEI and bypassed computer than it had with the original setup.

If you are interested...I have BBD's that were used on the SCCA IT-A Race
Car before we switched to the Weber.  If you will pay packaging and
shipping...I'll send them along.   No Guarantees...some of these were
purchased from AutoZone/etc as rebuilds.

The HEI Distributor is untested...but looks mean and nasty!
