Hey Shadowz. If you read thru the many posts concerning ignitions, distributors, etc., you'll see there are many options that people use w/o any problems. You have anywhere from mechanical advances only in the distributor, running a vacuum line that's split at the distributor with one end in the cockpit that you plug after starting, spinning the engine before turning on the ignition, pumping the gas a couple times before firing the engine, different types of starters, etc. Or, a multitude of combinations of the previous listing. It's whatever option/combination that will work for you application. Good luck.
