Read this complete ad before purchasing this product. Before you ask any questions about this product, please read the "Very Important Note" in the lower section of this ad.
Some models may have a wire retainer cover on the distributor cap. Often these wire retainers are difficult to use on many plug wires. If the plug wires fit securely on the cap there is not need for this retainer. We recommend not using it.
It's a fully self-contained distributor with the module, also called the brain box, built into it. You can get rid of every bit of that dried up wiring mess from your old system, including the ballast resistor. All this unit needs is a fresh 12 volt coil, and you simply hook up the two wires coming from the distributor to the coil, and that's it. No other wiring or components are needed.
The fact that you can eliminate that mess of dried out wiring and ballast resistor should be reason enough, as well as eliminating your well worn distributor.
If you're running a point style distributor now, you're going to be amazed at the way your car starts, warms up and performs when you switch over. We recommend a 12 volt coil (listed under distributor accessories in our other listings) and you will have the ultimate ignition system. This is a fully self-contained ignition system, except for the coil.
Point style distributors are simply insane to run. The unleaded fuel is so very poorly ignited with point type ignition systems.
This has to be the best money you could ever spend on your point style or early style electronic ignition system.
BRAND NEW IN THE BOX, COMES WITH A LIFETIME WARRANTY
NOTE FROM OUR COMPANY PRESIDENT, SKIP WHITE.

Some of the many benefits of electronic ignition over points are as listed below.
- Much better fuel mileage
- Far less pollution, as the fuel is burned much better
- Faster start ups, especially in cold weather
Those with carbs. prone to flooding will notice a huge difference, as the spark on electronic ignition is many times stronger than point style ignition.
- Virtually no maintenance, compared to points
- Spark plug life is 3-5 times longer, as well as plug wires
- Much better performance, over points, mostly due to the better combustion of unleaded fuel, as this was the primary reason for the development of electronic ignition.
- Point dwell changes as points wear out, causing your timing to advance dramatically. This brings your engine much closer to detonation, not to mention hard starting, and poor performance.
- Overall engine life is much longer with electronic ignition over points. This is a fact.
Most old distributors have wear in the shaft bushings, causing fluctuations in performance. It would be impossible for a distributor that's been run for 15 or more years to not have excessive wear.
Very Important Note.
Our technical knowledge is limited on this product. Our sales staff are usually unable to answer many of the questions asked. Many of the questions are, "how do you install this distributor", "what model cars will this work in", "how do I wire it up" Most of the people on our sales staff simply don't know these answers, and even if we did, the time involved answering so many of these questions is what led us to writing this notice. We update info in our listings on a regular basis, and if it's not in the ad, then there's a good chance we don't know the info. There is a solution to this problem for those with numerous questions about the product. You have all heard the saying that a picture is worth a thousand words. Well, it is, and with that being said, a video is worth a million words. If you go to YouTube and type in key words such as, "How to install a pro billet distributor" you will find dozens of highly informative videos showing the complete process step by step. These video are usually very accurate. We suggest that you watch several of them because some are easier to understand than others, and some have additional info in them that may not be covered in the others. You can't possibly go wrong watching these videos. At one time, we put installation instructions in our ads, and they led to much confusion for many, and the emails and calls coming were numerous. The videos on YouTube will be all you need. They are very simple and straightforward to follow. We did a search on the key words mentioned above, and literally hundreds of "how to" videos on every aspect of installing a pro billet came up.
