This is a fully self-contained distributor, with the module, also referred to as the brain box, built into it. The coil is also built into this unit. 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 one 12v power lead from a switchable source to be up and running.
This unit operates the same as the late Ford HEI that came out around 1975, but it is far more dependable than the Ford factory unit and you won’t have the unsightly fender well box with the massive amount of wiring going to it. The Ford factory electronic ignition was certainly better than the point style, but it was very unreliable and had a mess of wiring coming from it. If you are 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.
OUR BEST SELLING UNIT. THIS IS THE COMPLETE DISTRIBUTOR: BODY, SHAFT, GEAR, COIL, CAP, ROTOR BUTTON.
This distributor is to be used on 351W blocks that were originally carbureted. 351W engines that were fuel injected may not allow the use of this distributor. Some of the fuel injected blocks used a longer shaft distributor. It may also be possible that some of the late carbureted 351W blocks will not allow the use of this distributor. The single determining factor as to whether this distributor is the correct model for your engine would be the length of the shaft below the gear. Take notice of the picture below showing the approximate length of the shaft on our 351W distributors. As you can see, the length of the shaft past the gear is right at one inch long.
This is a must for those wishing to upgrade the ignition system.
Lifetime warranty on this unit, regardless of street or strip use.
For those not familiar with using the GM style HEI distributor in a Ford engine, it’s a very simple hookup. There are two male spade terminals in the cap. One is marked B and the other is marked T. The B terminal is to go to a power source that is active when the key is in the on position, and must also supply power when in the cranking position. The T terminal is for a tach. It’s that simple.
All auto supply and hardware stores have spade terminal kits. This dist. only requires one wire to be up and running. Use at least a 10 gauge wire to the dist. If you have an old point style Ford, do not use any of the old wiring, as they are too small, and delete the ballast resistor for sure.

Universal wires do require assembly on one end. This allows for perfect custom fit.
The Accel 5000 Series wires are a much better grade than the 3000 and 4000 series. These wires have an excellent heat resistance rating: 550 degrees versus the Accel 4000 series, which are only rated to 450. This higher temp. resistance is very desirable considering the high levels of heat most plug wires encounter. The heat is what destroys wires prematurely and allows voltage loss. These wires also have a much higher level of conductivity compared the 3000 and 4000 series. Compare the ohm rating on all the Accel wires and you will see there is a great difference between the 3000, 4000 and 5000 series. We consider these wires to be an excellent grade of wire for use on any street rod or stock vehicle. We use these wires on our turn key engine packages.
The 8mm 5000 Series wires are considered a medium to high-end set of wires. As you may know, plug wires come in many different quality grades. The 500 Series is one below the top of the line offered by Accel, which has four levels of plug wires. Therefore, one below the top grade is very decent cable. Each grade up has a lower resistance rating and a higher temp. rating. The ohm and temp. rating of a plug wire are very important. A good quality set of wires is very important for proper ignition. When comparing the many wires on the market, do understand that the quality varies greatly among them.
The Accel Super Stock Spiral Core Spark Plug Wire Set offers more ignition energy to the spark plug, producing a hotter, longer lasting spark flame kernel. The result is higher performance through improved efficiency, quicker throttle response and reduced emissions. This 8mm wire is constructed of double silicone and is rated to 550 degrees F. The high gloss silicone wire jacket resists heat extremes, petrochemicals and ozone and has moisture resistance for greater durability and longer life. The high-density, high-temperature and high-durometer silicone insulation provides greater dielectric strength. The fiberglass braid adds greater pull strength and terminal retention. The stainless steel spark plug terminals provide excellent long life, electrical conductivity and corrosion resistance. They are used with pre and post High Energy Ignition (HEI) applications and are custom/universal fit.
The male and female terminals are included. You will use the ends dedicated for use with male style distributor caps. The spark plug boots are straight style. We offer a lifetime warranty on the distributor and wires against manufacturer defects.
Beware of some of the 9.5-10mm low grade wires on the market. These knock-off wires have been found to be inferior in many different ways. They are composed of nothing more than a thick low grade rubber cable. Many of our competitors are offering these wires with the HEI distributor and also sell them alone. Those type wires retail for around $29-$38 and are pure junk. They capitalize on the large cable size, usually around 9.5-10mm. Truth is, any good quality set of 9.5mm or larger wires on the market would sell for well over $100.
When I refer to the low grade 9.5-10mm wires as being a knock-off set of wires, I want it to be understood that I don't have anything against so called knock-off products if the quality and value are what it should be. The low grade 9.5-10mm wires that are out there are not this way. We have firsthand knowledge with these wires, as they were sent to us for evaluation with the hope that we could offer a decent low cost product to our customers. Upon close observation, these wires were the worst we had ever seen. The copper spiral windings were micro-thin, and upon testing the ohm rating, the resistance was very high and tested worse than any wire we have ever seen. In layman's terms, the conductivity was very poor.
They lacked the many layers of protective jacketing of most high quality wires. The outer rubber jacket is made from a gummy soft rubber that has no resistance to heat. The center core in the wire was a fraction of the size of any name brand wire on the market. So don't be fooled by these low cost wires with a large mm diameter. The benefits of using a high end set of wires are many. Low quality wires will cause your engine not to perform the way it should, and they degrade in conductivity at a very fast rate as compared to name brand quality wires. We have seen several sellers offering these low-grade wires in various colors. The tell tale to spot these wires will be the fact they have an unfamiliar name, are unusually low in cost, large diameter cable size, (9.5-10mm) and have no spec ratings on the wire.
We also offer the distributor and wires in different color combos. See our other listings.
