Thanks, I have to recheck that.
It has the spark plug wire rail, but it's been flipped backwards so they used it to wire tie wires, etc. The oil filler tube has been bent back against the block to allow the alternator to be mounted. It will be a pain to fill the crankcase since it's almost touching the underside of the fuel tank. I can get the cap off, but it will require a flexible hose to add oil. The timing cover has been changed to allow the mounting for the side distributor. The coil is mounted behind the dash, above the battery. It's amazing what previous owners will do over the course of their ownership. I kind of wish they would have left the front mount distributor on it, left it 6V, etc.
