Bosch 009 distributors were originally supplied for constant speed engines
in an industrial application.  OK if you're screaming round a race circuit
at top speed, but not as satisfactory for general road use where engine rpm
changes much of the time.   If you're not a boy racer, the correct
distributor for your car would be a better choice, as long as it is in good
order and not worn out.

So what you're saying is I would need a totally different  dizzy, right?

Yes, or a different cap and rotor. Up to 67 used a short cap and matching
rotor, with a vacuum only distributor (except 64 & 65 "S" only, which were
vacuum and mechanical advance) in the USA. Other parts of the world got
different items after 67.
