OK guys, Do to the fact that that I am very short on time. (I need this back
together to prep it for the Portland track day next weekend. I'm organizing
it so I don't have a ton of time to work on the car later next week)

I went ahead and had Rod overnight a distributor to me so that I can get the
car back together Saturday night.

Thanks for all the input though and I hope that the deal Derek is working on
comes through eventually. I will buy one of the gears and fix my now spare
