MSD Distributor

Not Vehicle Specific
Part Number: 8378
Features & Benefits

Blue oval racers will be happy to see these crank trigger distributors. The housing of these three distributors are standard-height Ford distributors so they will work with cast intake manifolds. These distributors have a low-profile cap assembly to clear busy intake set-ups and are topped with MSD’s new Rynite-molded ford-style cap and wire retainer. The low design is accomplished because the only thing under the cap is a rotor! These distributors don’t have an advance assembly or pick-up so they must be used with a crank trigger. Since these distributors are designed for racing applications, a ball bearing is pressed into the housing to guide the polished steel shaft. Each distributor is supplied with a bronze gear.

  • Advanced optical encoder trigger design for accuracy and reliability
  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and Dupont Rynite base
  • Polished steel shaft with a QPQ coating for friction reduction
  • Shaft is guided by a sealed ball bearing
  • Must be used with an MSD crank trigger and MSD Ignition control
  • Supplied with a large diameter HEI style distributor cap and rotor
