Works great on my 1989 omc 5.8L. This conversion kit solved the problem. My boat wouldn't go past 2000 rpms an 3 mechanics could not figure out why. I kept telling them that I thought the springs were not advancing the timing but I did not want to spend $400 on a new distributor. I found this online and was told by one of them that it would eliminate the need for the springs to advance the timing so I ordered it and installed it. Now it works and purrs like a kitten. Thank you Wholesale marine for having this at the lowest price anywhere and with free shipping.
