this product is garbage

August 11, 2014
I purchased 2 of these distributors. Both of which came apart. The first one had 4 races on it when it came sort, the second had one race on it before it detonated. Not superior to a stock unit by any means.
No, I would not recommend this product.

great distributor but has flaws

July 31, 2012
i put this in my 84 ford ranger my daily driver. it took a few tries to get the advance springs right. it has a couple flaws that can be easily fixed before installation. first time it died on me the pin that holds the distributor gear on sheared off. i put the one from my oe distributor in and fine ever since. the second time it died on me the plate the advance springs attach to broke the welds at the shaft. a little weld and no problems since that. so fix those 2 things and i have no other complaints about this distributor. it works great
Pros:
  • Increases Power
  • Lightweight
Yes, I recommend this product.

Will the ford 2.3 billet Distributor listed Fit a 1972-74 Ford Pinto 2.0 Motor. I had a mallory distributor in my MINI MODIFIED race car and some way somehow the shaft is sticking so I wanted to replace the entire thing. I also have an MSD Box in the vehicle. I found the one listed above and if it will work I would be able to get my vehicle running rather than it being a garage paperweight.

The wire with the orange or red stripe is the positive side of the magnetic pickup. The other wire is the negative side of the mag pickup. Do not connect 12v power to this distributor. It must be connected to an ignition box only.
