FITS 194, 230, 250, 292 INLINE 6 CYLINDER CHEVY ENGINES

This distributor will not fit in a 235 Chevy engine.

These type engines are also commonly referred to as a "straight six."

This distributor will not fit 261, 235 & 216 engines. Damage to your cam gear will result from using this dist. in these engines. This dist. will actually fit in the mentioned engines and run for a short time, only to cause major damage to the cam gear and possibly the complete engine. Be sure of what engine you have before purchasing this dist. If you're not positively sure of what engine you have, it would be advisable to match up your old dist. to this before installing.

The ultimate upgrade from your old points distributor or worn out original HEI distributor.

Connect a 12 volt source use the HEI plug wires for a male style cap, and you now have the best ignition system made.

Installation instructions.

1. Unpack the distributor carefully and inspect it for possible shipping damage. Inspect again after removing the cap.

2. If the distributor to be replaced has not already been removed from the engine, remove its cap. On GM HEI distributor, unplug the pickup to coil harness from the cap. Do not remove the plug wire at this time. Crank the engine slowly until the rotor blade aims a fix point on the engine or firewall. Note this point for future reference.

3. Find the connector in the wiring from the distributor to the ignition switch, and unplug it.

4. Note the exact position of the vacuum advance canister. Put a reference mark on the engine or firewall so that the new distributor may be easily installed in the same position.

5. Loosen and remove the distributor hold-down bolt and clamp. Lift the old distributor out. If the engine had been running within the past few minutes, the distributor housing may be hot and coated with hot engine oil. Wrap a shop towel around the distributor to avoid burning your hands and dripping oil.

6. Lower the new distributor into position. The rotor should be aimed at the same fixed point as was the rotor of the old distributor, and the vacuum canister aligned with the reference mark. After the new distributor has been lowered into place, you may find that it hasn’t seated firmly against the support boss. This indicates that the lower end of the distributor shaft is not properly aligned with the oil pump drive rod. Do not attempt to force the distributor into position.

7. Reinstall the hold-down clamp and thread the bolt just enough to exert a very slight pressure against the distributor. If the distributor was not firmly seated, manually rotate the engine until the distributor drop down into place.

8. With the distributor properly seated, tighten the hold-down bold just enough so that the distributor is held in place but can still be rotated with a little effort. Again, make sure that the vacuum canister is aligned with the reference mark.

9. Remove the plug wires one at a time from the old cap and install them in the corresponding positions of the new one (on GM HEI distributors, it will also be necessary to transfer the coil and coil cover from the old cap to the new one). After all wires have been transferred, verify that the wire in the terminal post that is aligned with the rotor leads to number one cylinder. If you are unsure of cylinder number position or firing order, this information can be found in the service manual that covers your particular engine. Put on the distributor cap.

10. Reconnect the wiring leading from the distributor to the ignition switch. On GM HEI distributors, plug the pickup lead connector into the new distributor cap.

11. Connect timing light. Start the engine and allow it to warm up sufficiently to idle smoothly. It may be necessary to rotate the distributor (either clockwise or counter-clockwise) before a smooth idle can be achieved. If the engine will not idle smoothly, the firing order may be incorrect or the rotor may not have been properly aligned during installation. Consult a service manual for corrective procedure.

12. Consult the appropriate service manual to determine the factory-recommended initial timing and idle speed. Set initial spark timing with the vacuum advance line disconnected and plugged. Advancing timing two to four degrees from the factory setting will usually provide improved performance and fuel economy. However, timing advance beyond factory specification may result in detonation, which can cause engine damage. Listen carefully. If you hear the engine knocking or pinging, retard initial timing as required to eliminate it.

13 If you are converting from points to HEI, be sure that the your new unit is supplied with a full 12 volt power source. All point systems had a ballast resister that reduced voltage to around 6-8 volts. These resisters were often in the wire harness coming from the starter, and this must be eliminated. Test your power source to be sure your feeding the new HEI unit a full 12 volts. You will also need a spade terminal to tap your power source into the new unit. You can find such terminals at any auto supply. See our other listings for many HEI accessories.

This is the perfect upgrade for your classic Chevy, or just part of a tune-up. It would not be practical to re-install the original HEI back into your engine if you are overhauling it.

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.

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 used the original distributor. When we rebuild any early model Chevy 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. This 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.

WE ALSO HAVE ACCESSORY ITEMS AVAILABLE FOR THIS DISTRIBUTOR

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 any seller, and we 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.
