Does anyone have any experience with either of these distributors from Man-A-Fre? My distributor shaft is worn and I am thinking of going this way for replacement on my 40. Thanks, and happy new year! Terry

I had one in my 40. It worked great, I ran a larger gap and never fouled any plugs, etc. It's nice to get rid of the old ignitor stuff and just have 1 wire going to the distributor. Plus, these use GM HEI parts so they are available any where if something ever went bad.

Randy, did you have the DUI or the Man-A-Fre distributor? Thanks, Terry

It was the DUI brand. I can tell you this, one of the pins the centrifugal advance weights pivot on broke about 2 years after I installed the DUI unit. They sent me a brand new distributor at no charge, so the customer service/support from them is excellent.

I'm not sure but I wouldn't be surprised if the Man-a-fre version is made by DUI and just re-branded.

Of course, as I understand it, when the aliens come and send a hugh EMP to disable all of earth's mechanisms, the DUIs will be fried but the old points and plugs will still work...so you're taking your chances!

Precisely why I've lined my the sheet metal in all my vehicles with tinfoil. I have a hat lined as well for the rare occasions I have to step away from WoW for a LARP date at undisclosed locations. I know the local bullies were using brain scanners to find out where we were having our battles because they always showed up and ruined everything. It has happened far less since the council made it law that we must line our hats. It also makes our cardboard swords and shields look more authentic.
