HEI distributor. This is a must for those wishing to upgrade the ignition system from points, or the poorly designed electronic ignition that AMC came out with around 1974. This is a one wire distributor. Call 423-722-5152 for tech. info.

***AMC CAM GEAR WARNING***

MAKE SURE TO CHECK YOUR CAM GEAR. 95% OF MOST AMC APPLICATIONS CANNOT PUT NEW DISTRIBUTOR GEAR WITH AN OLD CAM GEAR OR IT COULD EAT UP YOUR CAM GEAR. MAYBE NOT RIGHT AWAY AS MOST BUT WOULD WITHIN A VERY SHORT PERIOD. FAILURE TO DO SO COULD BE VERY COSTLY TO YOU. YOUR CHOICE.

Lifetime warranty, unlimited mileage!

We are the no.1 wholesale marketer of HEI distributors in the country.

We have many garages and speed shops that purchase these in case lots from us. We have the best HEI on the market.

Click on the purchases tab above, and you will be shocked as to how many people are buying this unit. We havnoticed other units on the market, but few are of this quality. It is the no. 1 HEI on the market.

We have possibly sold more of these than anyone in the country. This is a totally revised unit.

Lifetime warranty, unlimited mileage!

Complete distributor. Our absolute best selling unit. This is the complete distributor body, shaft, gear, coil, cap, rotor button.

Read some of our past feedback from those who have purchased this unit, and you will be convinced of its quality and value.

This is the newest version on the market. This has the high output coil and is essential on any modified engine.

We do have the best HEI on the market. Our failure rate is nearly zero on this unit.

Notice the precision machine work on the distributor body. Many others are not like this. We have been very selective on our choice, as there are many HEI's on the market.

We have sold this same unit at our store for several years, and have many high performance engines in this area running this unit. The only difference is this is a much improved model.

We are in the performance business. Give us a call if you have any technical questions, 423-722-5152.

Fully CNC Machined - Polished Housing
Adjustable vacuum advance canister to improve economy while cruising
Premium caps with brass terminals, and a low-saturation ignition module
High Output Coil
It also offers true spark alignment for instantaneous response at high RPM

We offer a lifetime warranty on this distributor.

This is the perfect upgrade for your classic AMC JEEP, or just part of a tune-up. Here are a few problems you are most likely to encounter, when using an old distributor.

  • Excessive end shaft play
  • Bushing wear
  • Weak coil, worn or cracked cap, and button
  • Weak module
  • Corrosion buildup
  • Weakened advance springs
  • Gear wear
  • If going from points to HEI this alone is a huge upgrade

All of the above can greatly affect the performance of your engine.

Warning, you must run 12 volts to this unit. No ballast resistor is to be used. Most if not all point distributors used a ballast resistor in the power line. Do away with this or the HEI unit will not be receiving a full 12 volts. Use a volt meter to confirm this. Sometimes the ballast resistor is difficult to locate. You are better off running a fresh new 10 gauge power lead that is active when the key is in the crank and run position.

These are just a few of the things that most old distributors have going on with them. For the low cost of a complete brand new one, it just makes little sense to use the original distributor. When we rebuild any early model AMC engine, we insist the customer purchase a new distributor. You will notice a performance difference in your engine if you have any of the above issues with your old distributor. All of the old HEI's we see have excess end play in the shaft. I'm sure the coils on them are not at full voltage. The Super Coil is much more than the OEM model. All car makers have dramatically improved the ignition systems on cars and trucks. This is an indication of how important good ignition is to an engine.

I consider this the absolute best mod you can do to your engine for under $70.

This distributor also has the performance curve setup. Do not be misled into thinking other HEI's on the market are superior to this. If anything, they are most likely the older version. We have sold more HEI's than most others around, and we do our best to provide the newest models available.

Important Note.

The part numbers for distributors beginning with 65 and 85 are interchangeable. The distributors are identical in every respect. We changed the artwork on the package to private labeling and our supplier had to change our part number to distinguish our private label (85 series) from the standard labeling sold to other suppliers (65 series). You may receive the alternate part number since we still have both in stock.
