The 83 N/A Dizzy will work BUT you will need the Ignition Module from a 79 - 80 (E12-80).

So you are better off using the Dizzy from a 79 - 80.

As far as hooking it up search the archives. There are many posts with links to the information with schematics.

What is wrong with your current setup?

I'm just going to be blunt and say "No it won't work". You would have to bypass your original ignition box/ballast resistor/coil, and re-route several vacuum lines. Not a simple task without all the right tools and documentation.

2-wire/3-wire dizzys discussed but not complete:

Some more talk of ignitions:

Great overall description of distributor by 79-280-ZX:

Why don't you respond to your previous posts before asking your next question?
