Overview

Sharing the CNC machining techniques with the rest of the MSD Distributor line, the Olds housing is machined from high quality 6061-T6 aluminum. Adding to this strength are two sealed ball bearings that guide the 0.500" shaft accurately through 10,000+ rpm. TIG-welded on top of the polished steel shaft is MSD's adjustable mechanical advance assembly. To accurately trigger the ignition, a high-output magnetic pick-up is bolted to the base. This trigger pick-up produces a precise trigger signal. An MSD red cap with brass terminals and Race Rotor are supplied.

Features:

  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
  • Will not accept a vacuum advance canister
  • Must be used with an MSD Ignition Control
  • Supplied with an HEI style distributor cap and rotor (accepts Cap-A-Dapts)
  • Nylon pads ensure smooth operation of the advance weights
  • Advance weight pins are staked and tig welded to the plate
  • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out for crank trigger systems
  • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from chrome moly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction
  • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by two sealed ball bearings
  • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the rpm range
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • No CARB Exemption Order Number
