The V8-6-4 368 was one of the most unreliable, ill-conceived chunks of
the era. In fact, yours is only the second example I have ever heard of
that was the subject of an attempt at repair. In all honesty, you may be
better served to replace the motor with something more conventional. The
car was available with a 252 V6, the Modulated 368, or a 350 Olds diesel,
so I would think a small block Olds (350/307 would be a good suggestion) would
go in with relatively minimal parts swapping. Just for kicks, I checked
the Delco distributor we use at work and found nothing. If a dealer
can't locate the part, you're probably hosed. As far as a diagram, your
best (only?) bet would be to obtain a proper Helm factory service manual

I repaired the MDA controller board. Made the diagram myself and it is easy
to see how this works. A transistor what enables the MDA if the ignition is

Because there are no spares available anymore I will offer help for someone
likes to have this repaired or tested on functionality.
Please contact me. I'm located in California.
