Put a 73 Lincoln 460 motor in my 86 f250
86 distributor won't work. Different oil pump drive gear size. If I buy a distributor 73 460 it says if has points.
What are my options for a.pointless ignition ?

I know it's a different ford engine family, but I put a points distributor in the 390 in my truck and got rid of the points with a pertronix kit. Advance Auto had the pertronix kit in stock for like $75 or so. It runs fine, though I have yet to limit the mechanical advance and tune the curve the way I normally do on engines with distributors.

I saw something interesting yesterday. A friend of mine bought a pretty complete '76 f100 out of a junkyard. It has a small cap electronic distributor in it. I thought a '76 would have had the big cap type. Many years ago I had a '76 ltd with a 400 in it, and it had a big cap distributor. Maybe trucks got the big cap a year or two later?
