  • Parts for Holley Distributor

    Just browsing around this BB has been very helpful. I didn't think anyone knew this much about IH engines. My question is, I have a 1974 Scout II with a 345 and a Holley distrubutor 30-44821H. In order for me to buy cap, rotor, etc. here in the VI, I have to link it to a specific vehicle otherwise they wont even look at me. Is there, or was there any vehicle that used this distributor as a stock unit so that I could go to the parts store and ask for components for a 66 Fairlane or whatever? I know it's a stretch but it would save me some hassle. If not, is there a place online or such I can get components easily for this distributor?

    I'm not interested in converting anything. The vehicle and engine are a bit "tired" and is what we call an "island car". SO just making it reliable again will be enough. Thanks in advance,

    I don't know what parts in the dizzy you are refering to so this may not help, but did you look at the Duraspark conversion?

    May not even be an option for the dizzy you have? Points?

    D&C sells a GM HEI/IH hybrid,but its lots of coins.

    Wish ya luck!!

      Hey Darel -

      If it's that difficult dealing with the parts monkeys, try using something like www.partsamerica.com or www.rockauto.com. I too have the Holley dist. & I just looked & partsamerica carries the cap at least. I'm not sure of a cross-reference. You might need to do some research.

      Good luck,
      Jerry

        tell them you have a 1974 Ford F100 pickup with a 302 cid engine. That what I used to do many years ago when the binders were'nt in the system. Plus some places charge you more for an eqivalent part that has a ih part number.

            Your parts guy/gal most likely can get your parts if they know how to look them up old school I had a problem with an auto parts chain in Post Falls ID and was complaining to my regular parts guy and he said that most companies only train their people to use the computer and not the books like in yesteryear IH is mostly in the books So now when I have to use one of those stores I usually ask for the manager because the odds are greater he will know the books.

            I about lost it once when a kid in the AP store asked me Who made IH.

              I am lucky enough to have a NON computered CQ in my little town thats had the same employees for 20 years. If they can't find it its not avaliable anymore. Would not trade them or there business for any other out there. I can even buy plumbing stuff there. Kinda a Wal-Mart of car parts store.

                I think you can tell them it is what it is? But if not my 1977 Scout II traveler 345 had the holley cap and rotor from factory.

                  If you think YOU can't get parts....

                  You would think I could go in with that distributor info and get what I needed, but you would be dead wrong. Maybe in the states, not the Virgin Islands. One place didn't have any listings for IH and had no idea even what one was. The people are somewhat lazy and impatient here and if they can't complete your transaction first time without digging, they just give up and tell you to get lost. Thank god for the internet.

                    I always look things up on the internet before the wife runs to the store. Just to keep the counter jockeys from screwing it up.
                    I have..

                    http://www.autozone.com
                    http://www.napaonline.com

                    I can always find a listing. If not IH then somthing else.
                    Then I print the part number and the price and give it to the wife.
                    At least they will have a cross reference.
