    it never says that on any of the write ups. it always says unbolt the dizzy and move it aside....never says not to use the y8

    No. It won't mount properly.

    We've been over this many times. Yes, it will mount, but you'll be missing a mount-point, as only two bolts will fit. If you get creative with it, you can make a mount yourself, but I'd suggest just buying the right part.

    <shameless plug>
    I've got a y8 distributor for sale. Check the FS thread in my sig.
