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.
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 fully self-contained distributor, with the module, also call brain box, built in to it. You don’t need any external devices except a coil. 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 this distributor to the coil, and that's it. No other wiring or components are needed.
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. You should try the coil we have listed in our other listings (super e-core coil), and you will have the ultimate ignition system.
Make no mistake, this is a fully self-contained ignition system, except for the coil. Point style distributors are simply insane to run. Unleaded fuel is very poorly ignited with point type ignition systems.
Notice the chrome box on the lower side of our distributor. That's where the GM style module is located. The module is not the very same module GM uses, but it is the same design. You know that GM had that design over 30 years ago. Now you can open your plug gap to around 45-50 instead of 35 if you’re running points, as the spark this unit produces is many times stronger.
Brand new in the box, comes with a one-year warranty.
This unit is nearly identical in size to the original points distributor, and is fully electronic. All that's needed is an external 12 volt coil. This unit is supplied with a male style cap.
The performance difference from points to electronic ignition is dramatic to say the least, not to mention that most early points style distributors are worn out.
This unit has a vac. advance.
Some of the many benefits of electronic ignition over points are listed below.
Overall engine life is greatly improved with electronic ignition over points.
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 20 or more years not to have excessive wear.
Coil not included. See our other listings for distributor related accessories.
WE ARE THE NO.1 WHOLESALE MARKETER OF HEI DISTRIBUTORS IN THE COUNTRY.
Many garages and speed shops purchase these in case lots from us. We have the best small base distributor on the market.
This is the newest version on the market.
This is perfect to upgrade your vehicle or to use as part of a tune-up. Here are a few problems you are likely to encounter when using an old distributor:
These are just a few issues with most old distributors. For the low cost of a brand new one, it just makes little sense to use the original distributor. When we rebuild any early model engine, we insist that the customer purchase a new distributor. You will notice a performance difference in your engine if you have any of these issues with your old distributor. All of the old HEIs we see have excess end play in the shaft.
This distributor also has the performance curve setup. Do not be misled into thinking other HEIs on the market are superior to this one. If anything, they are most likely the older version. We have sole more HEIs than most other vendors, and we do our best to provide the newest models available.
Super fast shipping! Distributor appears to be of highest quality. A++++
