Thanks to help from Jeanie and WE7x I was able to get a copy of the drawing to perform the Ehrlbacher mod. It's used to locate the hole in your distributor gear so you can use a roll pin. I took the gear to a shop that had EDM services (electrical discharge machining) and they performed the work. Dizzy can now be installed!

Sorry for the poor picture quality! It just shows the roll pin installed.

I do a good bit of highway driving, so the SM420 trans needs to go. I looked around and found a 6 spd Tremec conversion. This should work great with 305 V6! The Tremec is a lot longer.
