Features & Benefits

Starting on the inside, a 0.500 In. oversized steel shaft spins in a sealed ball bearing and sintered bushing for long endurance and accurate spark delivery throughout the entire RPM range. Mounted on top of the shaft is an easy-to-adjust chromoly mechanical advance assembly. Different advance springs and stop bushings are supplied so you can choose from 24 curves. A maintenance-free magnetic pick-up provides accurate trigger signals to your MSD Ignition control. A precision-manufactured reluctor that is connected to the shaft is responsible for triggering the pick-up. The distributor is topped off with a high quality black cap and race rotor.

  • Housing machined out of CNC billet aluminum
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the RPM range
  • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by a sealed ball bearing and extra long sintered bushing
  • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from chrome chromoly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction
  • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out
