What was wrong with your cheap GM HEI distributor that made you want to install a cheap Chinese distributor in order to fix?

If your spark knock is occurring under light throttle conditions, try disconnecting the vacuum advance line before you do anything else. If that doesn't make any improvement, it's very possible that putting some stiffer advance springs in your cheap Chinese distributor can solve your problem. Buy an advance kit and do some experimentation before you lay down $500.

Better yet, find a shop with a distributor machine and find out what your cheap Chinese distributor is doing now before you go inside it.

Those who choose an automatic transmission want transportation. Those who choose a manual transmission want to drive.
