This flathead distributor has a sealed ball bearing and a special bushing that required no regular oiling as compared to the original distributors which had the oil passage.

This distributor must be used with an ignition box such as 5476201 and the coil must be compatible with the ignition box used. For that MSD 6A ignition box we recommend coil 5478202.

I've already learned I do not need an MSD Box with this Distributor - it works good wired directly to the Coil BUT I would like to ensure I have the right Coil to avoid problems. What is the recommended resistance for the Coil to work with the 2 Bolt Electronic Distributor #9108351??

Distributor number 9108351 is designed to work with coil number 9108223 when used with suggested high energy control box. If using without a control box, which is not recommended, a coil with 1.5 ohm resistance would be suggested.
