Can a distributor with from an Oliver 77, 77 super or 770 replace

the Holley distributor with vacuum advance on a 1550? Or should I go with an Petronix ignition system?

For the people that have made the change on your 1550 are you happy than you did? I'm about the buy the Petronix kit.

Your replies are appreciated.

Mine has a Mallory. I had to go to a Pertronix ignition in that one to make it right. You might as well skip a step and go right to the Pertronix in the Holley.

Conversion to a Mallory distributor was popular. Mine was and works fine despite not being in the best condition.
