    You need a smaller bodied distributor I believe. If you look at how close the forward crossover tube on your stock fuel rail sits to the dizzy...you'll see why anything bigger is going to hit.

    It might be that simple. I can't say really.

    UPR sells an adapter so that you can run a small chevy points style cap on your stock distributer.
