I have a Crane Cams Fireball ignition ready to drop into the RX. Has anyone on here used a similar setup with the stock distributor? I'm guessing it's a magneticly triggered distributor, right? If so, should be easy.

i think the disty in the rx is optically triggered, eithe that or a hall effect switch. if you look under the plate that goes under the rotor, there is a thin metal disk with tiny little holes along the edge of it, that passes through a pick up, looks like its an optical pick up.

Its optical if its '87 or newer, magnetic if older.
