Default Duraspark Ignition

Does anyone have a durspark ignition they could ship me? ive got all the info and am so ready to kick the god damn EEC IV out of my truck but theres no 2.8 stangs or pintos around here so i havent been able to get the ignition out of one. If anyone has a spare one sitting around or knows of one at a junk yard let me know your price and ill let you know what i think, thanks.

You can buy all the stuff at a auto parts store, there are part numbers in the tech library

Everything except the wiring harness. NAPA does not stock the pigtail plugs anymore and I have not found another supplier. The last Duraspark swap I did (2 years ago) required trips to the junkyard.

There IS a way to do something similar WITHOUT having to buy most of the expensive parts (distributor and carb.) It involves using the round can type coil and redoing some wiring so that the coil and distributor are hot on ignition-start but that's all I remember. It's also possible to use the crappy carb with some mods. I know all this because I personally owned and drove a truck with the above and it worked fine. Just involves a bunch more research with wiring and such.

Buy a Mustang II distributor for a 2.8 . . cheap.
Buy a GM HEI unit for a Camaro . . cheap.
Pay attention to the wiring diagrams on this site or other, so special harness needed and if you are good, can look stock.

I would but being in a small town all the stangs and camaros get bought up in an instant due to the rich people in the foot hills restoring them. Trust me ive been to all my junk yards around here scouring for hours to find nothing thats why i came here. Nightmare, yeah but thats just the control module and with that module id also need the distributor and a new coil since its a completely different system, if i did that id just get the whole msd ignition system from a parts store but again money is the problem i just absolutely cant afford brand new which is why i posted here thanks for helping though guys

No junk yard, Autozone or such. Distributor is about $45 and HEI is about $17.
