    I need help trying to find one of these things. I don't what it is and I need both sides of the plug. A new distributor would come with one side, but not the other. My distributor isn't very old so I'd prefer not to replace it. Two wires come off the distributor, the other two goes to I think the ICM. Then there's two ground wires on either side. It got torn from the wires at some point and it's rigged to be barely attatched but the ground is kinda poor so it's straining my ignition coil.

    One choice if the part is hard to find is to disconnect the old repair, make new repairs using longer wires soldered to the plug plus heat shrink tubing to protect the repaired connection.

    An HEI actually might be pretty nice. I HATE electrical. Plus soldering wouldn't be too easy from what it looks like. The wires are dug into the foam/plastic medium of the plug so I feel I'd have to destroy it to figure it out.
