    dead HEI dizzie

    I am trying to breath some life into an (197 350 Caddy engine converted from injection to carb. There seems to no life in HEI dizzie apart from having loads of excess wiring which may have linked to the fuel injection system. Is there a points dizzie that will fit this engine, single or duel points. Trying not chuck too much cash at it so not fussed even if secondhand. Any ideas folks.
