me an my brother are on the verge of starting his 408m. but we have run into a problem, the base of the distributor hit the intake an a cheap pro comp clears the intake fine, but its a piece of shit. from the block to the base needs to be four inches. can anyone help? also the motor has adapter plates for the intake to fit the cleveland heads (2bbl head to 4bbl intake)

351W distributors will work after you change the gear to a C/M gear as the od is different size.

What I meant to say was you might try the 351W dist. and see if one would clear and work for you, then change the gear to a C/M one.

How about a 1975 351W rebuilt dist?  It is elect and is small diameter.
