Default 87 blazer swap

Hello everyone I am here to figure out somethings that maybe, hopefully others will know. I am doing a swap on my 87 S10 blazer. Originally it was a 2.8 5 speed 4x4 Tbi. I blew out the tranny n decided to do the swap i wanted to do. so far this is what it will be...

93 4.3 with nv3500 4wd 5 speed out of 4x4 94 k1500

I have the clutch parts and lines, master and slave cylinder for tranny. Got the 4.3 conversion motor mounts as well as the older style tbi. Have the radiator and the new oil cooler lines that will be an added feature. Most of it i have ready to go, but one thing...
The 87 only had the 4 bangers and the small 60 degree v6's. 88 was the first year they started with the 4.3's. Being that its only a year away you'd think that the distributors would have close to the same plug, but they don't. Does anyone know what I can do to wire up the stock plug or splice into it to make it work with the 93 distributor plugs which are the same as the 88 model. Any info would be greatly appreciated also I can add some pics if needed. Thankss
