We all know the GM 4-pin HEI (mid-seventies thru early-eighties and universal performance favorite). We also know it's near dead-nutz reliable; but that their modules occasionally fail and that's often attributed to it becoming overheated. Of course we also know to ensure the module is installed with a good heat transfer/thermal paste (such as Arctic Silver) between it and its mount pad on distributor base. We know how heat is mortal enemy of most electronic circuits; and that reducing heat can often extend electronics' useful life. Well ... Years ago, GM removed the module from inside-on that very hot distributor housing and mounted it (and coil) remotely. You can easily relocate Your old module as well... where it'll run much cooler.
