This distributor uses a high-output magnetic trigger to fire an MSD Ignition Control. Accurate trigger signals and spark delivery are the responsibility of the QPQ-coated steel shaft. A sealed ball bearing and long sintered bushing hold this shaft stable at any rpm. An adjustable mechanical advance mechanism is mounted on top of the shaft. Nylon pads ensure smooth movement of the fine balanced weights for accurate timing advancement. A variety of advance stop bushings and springs are supplied so you can dial-in a custom curve.

Features:

  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
  • Must be used with an MSD Ignition Control
  • Supplied with an HEI style distributor cap and rotor (accepts Cap-A-Dapts)
  • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out for crank trigger systems
  • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by a sealed ball bearing
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • No CARB Exemption Order Number
