Somebody took my idea! :willynilly: It might be a lot easier to eliminate the distributor and do a EDIS crank fired ignition like I did on my 22r. Requires an ignition module, coil and crank sensor from a 90s Ford Escort or any other Ford vehicle that uses an EDIS4. Also requires a 36-1 trigger wheel for the crank sensor which is probably the most difficult part but it's not that complicated. A Megajolt ignition controller from Autosport labs controls ignition timing and can be easily tuned for your timing needs. It may sound complicated but I've done two 22r propane setups with EDIS and it works great and is more responsive that a dist. all the parts are usually under $300.

This sounds like an interesting setup and one that i wouldn't mind trying on my rig.  When you eliminated the distributor, what did you do to fill the hole or did you leave it there as a plug per se?

Measure the hole and get a freeze plug the right size.

Or make a plate and put some silicone on it. I've done that twice when replacing heads on 2 coil motors. They were drilled for a distributor.

Finally ordered a mechanical distributor for a 3RZ from China. The quality looks really good. Now I've just got to find a 3RZ from a T100.
