I believe so, but even if not, it's easy to change the aux. shaft. As long as the block itself has the hole machined for the dist. then it's doable.

The aux shaft has the gear on it. That piece that plugs the hole also has a gear on it and it drives the oil pump. There is no fuel pump lobe, so if you are planning on opening the fuel pump boss, you will need to get an earlier aux shaft.
Why would you want to go to a Duraspark and what are you planning for the extra 4 plugs?

Yes, I've read about that. I have one of those GM mudules, been planning to put it on the Duraspark setup I have in my '68 F250, just haven't gotten around to it yet.

Use the TFI I module with the duraspark dist. It puts out a better signal to the coil. I've run both with E coils and earlier stock / aftermarket coils and the TFI I was more reliable. Both are easy to wire and give you the advantage of a centrifical curve vs the locked TFI IV in non computer set up.

thanks Rob! I did a search on using the efi original distributor and running carb, i found the wiring instructions at www.4m.net in the ministock tech section searching under "ford wiring" topic ,,,love the tough little ohc2.3!
