Hi,

here is his engine : Chysler A engine / 301ci (The Plymouth 301 replaced the 278 in 1957).

it's compatible with this distributor ? :

From what I've read, any distributor that fits the LA small block mopars should work with the poly engines.

Good  Very Happy

so for the distributor a Chrysler A = LA, it's the same ^^

I was scared because the seller wrote me this:

"Thanks for your question,

This distributor is designed for the Chrysler LA engine. Some sources show that the distributors will interchange with the A engine. Using this distributor in your enging is at your own risk.

Thanks,

Paul"

Thank you guys, I'll be able to take this distributor with the coil

I'm talking about this too but it's more expensive and less efficient:

"PerTronix 1383 Ignitor Points Eliminator Kit, 1951-58 Mopar V8"

Thank you for your help
