Default HEI, Distributor Rebuilt

I realise that this isn't the right forum for this question, but does anyone know where I would be able to find a write up on the proper way to rebuild a HEI Distributor, including.replacing the bushings, installing advance curve kit, checking advance control unit, shiming etc? By the way it'* for a 350 chev motor.


Thanks

I think I see something related about 1/3 of the way down, thanks Mike.

I got the Q-Jet rebuilt, but I figured after 31 years, the distributor was the next logical step, since I know it'* not set up right.

Bill, you see the list I have for the 90 SSEi, multiply that by about 10. The last thing I have to do is put on a */* exhaust, but keep in mind that I have to maintain the infamous budget.

What if I try for the end of next summer?

Wish me luck, cause I'm going to need it.
