Looking at a 91 yj (on the net) with a 96 LT1. He said the distributor was low, but damn I did not think he was talking
about the front of the motor. Found the setup in Summit today.
it is a Jesel belt drive timing setup with a Jesel distributor on
it. About 1050.00 for both. Can a LT1 use a normal Chevy distributor at the top rear of motor? This can't be good for water.
Anyone used this setup?

Thanks
James

It is a crank trigger set up. Can not use a std dist. on LT1's. Not sure how well they do w/water.

Posted my solution to the water problem a few times. Do a search.

All 93+ LT1's came stock with an Optispark module that's mounted under the water pump and above the crank shaft.

Lt1's can be converted to a distributor. Need to drill the hole in the intake manifold and add a wedge or build up some material to get it to sit right. Then the complete harness and computer need to be replaced with a TPI setup designed to run with a stock distributor. Several writeups online if you search.

Many issues with LT1's but they have great power and a great torque curve.

Cool. Can learn something every day.:D I knew that they made manifolds to put carbs on. Hadn't heard about converting to a dist.
