Fe rocker assy are usually a non adjustable item. Just bolt on and go except if you have a solid lifter cam. Then you need the adjustable style. Yes, that rocker assy will work. As for a dizzy, it all depends on what you are going to do with the vehicle. All OEM--points dizzy. You could go with a Ford Duraspark for another factory look. Aftermarket like Mallory, MSD, Accel, Crane, DUI all make good dizzys with and without Electronic spark boxes.

I got parts like complete rocker shaft assemblies and distributor at my local auto part supplier. I've got a business account so saved some money and rely on retailer warranty, returns, etc. You might want to check tha option out. It's amazing what is still available.

I disagree with that.

If you have a 390, you can find some info at http://fordfe.com
