O, and ingition parts. My brother and I bought him a MSD billet distributor, coil, wires and 6a offroad box a long time ago so he threw out everything stock. Im not sure if there are any stock parts that would be needed.
Well I have this ignition shit that came off my 258 when I put on the HEI dist just sitting around if needed.
As for the axle, an AMC 20 will be stronger than a D44 if the 2-piece shafts are replaced with 1-pieces and the tubes are welded (4 separate half inch long welds around the tube per side) to the center chunk. May be a more economical solution than sourcing a D44...
