Has anyone back-dated a 3.3 distributor before?

While I decide which EFI to try, I would like to backdate my 3.3 distributor to use it without an ECU. I have a '77 car so I don't plan to update the wiring to match the stock '87 engine.

Concerns:
1. The '87 3.3 distributor has reversed the direction of the drive gear that was in my '77 2.7, so I can't use either at this point.

2. I don't have, nor want an ECU.

3. I'm not ready for a crank trigger system until I choose an EFI setup.

Any good suggestions?

All I want to do is make the 3.3 disty accept my simple MSD setup, or find an easy replacement.

Thanks!
