    injection distributors are no use for what you want. They might look similar from the outside, but they are internally very different.

    greasy - it is pretty much as basic as you think yeah, re-connect the positive wires, and add an earth if you need to. you just need the right gear to do it, a carbed ignition setup.
    the internals of the SPI distributor you have now are different from a carbed variety and no use like meritlover says.

    depending on your cam. if its pin drive, the 1.4SR setup jack was talking about is the one. if its slot drive, a 1.2/1.3 setup will do
