A few years ago I wanted hei Chevy style distributor for my 72 cj5 with the 304.
I disassembled my original and the hei one (from a junkyard for 20$). I found that the shaft was the same diameter on both. I carefully removed all parts including the shafts. I carefully cut both distributor bodies in half, making sure the hei shaft was the correct length, so, essentially using the base of the original AMC and the top of the Chevy, with the Chevy shaft. I then had a welding shop aluminum weld them back together. Voila, a perfectly working hei distributor for less than 30$. Just thought I'd pass that on as I keep seeing posts about wanting hei, and, this was a way I got around the costs. :)
