The 311 "L" distributor is the stock FI dist for '68-9 and has one of 
the best advance curves you can find anywhere. You can ignore the FI 
trigger points installed in the side of it, but those points make 
this a taller distributor than the stock carb dizzy, so you'll want 
to make sure to use a SP wireset with right angle connectors to the 
dist cap. Otherwise, the wires will rub against the engine cover 
insulation and destroy it, and also eventually damage the wires.
