Q & A

What's in the Box

MSDs billet distributors are for Ford enthusiasts who are serious about performance! Just under the brass terminals of the MSD cap and rotor is an easy-to-adjust mechanical advance assembly. The assembly is fine blanked from chromoly steel, TIG-welded for strength plus receives a QPQ coating. The precision weights glide on nylon bushings for smooth advancement and different springs and stop bushings are supplied so a variety of advance curves can be tuned. The steel shaft that spins the advance and reluctor receives a friction reducing coating plus is guided by a sealed ball bearing and long sintered bushing. This combination provides stable timing signals and spark delivery at any rpm. Triggering chores are handled by MSD’s race proven, maintenance-free magnetic pick-up. 

Fits 289-302 Small Block Ford V8. Must be used with an MSD 6, 7, 8 or 10 Series ignition control.

  • Large Base/Cap Distributor
  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and Dupont Rynite base
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the rpm range
  • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by a sealed ball bearing
  • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from Chromoly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction

MSD 8207 Blaster SS Coil
(Part #5478207)
                        Don’t let the compact size of the Blaster SS Coil fool you, because it is packed with performance! The efficient E-core windings are designed to produce high amounts of current without sacrificing the voltage output. In fact, when used with an MSD 6 Series Ignition, the Blaster SS produces 300 milliamps with a maximum voltage output of 40,000 volts! The secondary windings are wound on a segmented bobbin which reduces the chance of voltage breakdown between the primary and secondary windings. For more protection, these windings are encased in a polyurethane compound for complete protection against vibration. The Blaster SS features brass terminals and a sturdy Rynite housing. It is supplied with a 90° boot, terminal and vibration mounts. A great addition to CD Ignitions and some stock applications.
  • Improved output coil for electronic ignitions, and MSD Ignitions
  • Efficient winding design and assembly creates a compact housing
  • Primary and secondary windings are encased in Ciba polyurethane
  • 70:1 turns ratio and lower primary resistance produce high voltage output
  • Dupont Rynite housing with a tall tower and brass primary terminals

MSD 8253 HVC II Coil for 6 Series Ignitions
(Part #5478253)
                        

The latest coil to be built entirely in-house at MSD is designed to be used with MSD 6 Series Ignition Controls. This coil utilizes an iron U-Core design with a segmented bobbin for improved voltage distribution. The bobbin is molded from a special Dupont Rynite material and wound specifically to produce the most current possible with incredible voltage and lightning quick rise time. The blue housing is also molded from high dielectric Rynite material. The brass primary terminals are spaced far apart and the secondary tower is well protected for increased spark isolation. The housing is completely potted with an epoxy compound for vibration resistance and installs with sturdy vibration mounts.

  • Designed for high rpm, long duration applications using MSD 6 Series Ignitions
  • New U-core winding design produces more voltage and current
  • 100:1 turns ratio and lower primary resistance produce high voltage output
  • Windings are encased in fracture resistant compound for vibration resistance
  • Dupont Rynite housing with isolated tower and brass primary terminals
  • Supplied with rubber shock mounts

MSD 85833 Ford Steel Distributor Gear for Aftermarket Roller Cams
(Part #54785833)
                        

A distributor’s performance is only as good as its drive gear. MSD Ignition has put a great deal of effort into researching and testing a variety of metallurgical compositions, heat treating and coatings to provide you with a durable, accurate and strong distributor gear. The result is a special iron alloy gear that is treated to a low-friction coating process. To you this means long life, an easy break-in period and reliable performance!

For use with non-EFI Small Block Ford 302 V8 with roller cams. Gear has a 0.468" I.D.

  • Increased outer hardened layer thickness (RC 55-60)
  • Micro polished surface for smooth contact
  • Proprietary formulated ductile iron
  • Melonite QPQ coated reduces friction and initial wear
  • Interstitial carbide concentration improves wear resistance
