    WTB: Distributor

    I'm looking for a known good 'steel gear' distributor for my '90 5.0. I tried a 'new' Cardone unit but the gear was not meshing correctly. Tried a 'reman' Cardone and no spark...

    I'm in Waterloo. If you have one let me know.

    Thanks
    Matt

    No luck with MSD? I see CJ Pony has a good selection of distributors as well.

    You may be able to change the gear only. I believe the gear is different in the roller engine opposed to the pre '85 /'86 hydraulic cam engines, depending on what you have in your engine and I'm assuming its a roller being a '90

    Id try Jeff at Mustang Specialteaz. I think Id rather have a used OEM one over MSD

    Maybe the one you had just didnt engage the oil pump shaft?
