Q & A

What's in the Box

This distributor was designed for the rigors of oval track racing. Built of 6061-T6 aluminum and features two magnetic pick-ups. This allows you to run two separate ignition systems and switch to the second system if the first fails, without a timing change. Must be used with MSD 6, 7, 8 or 10 series boxes. Fits small block Chevy V8.

  • Dual magnetic pickups are placed 180° apart to provide a complete redundant ignition system for racing applications
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from Chromoly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction
  • Advance weight pins are staked and tig welded to the plate
  • Nylon pads ensure smooth operation of the advance weights
  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
  • 0.500” steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by a sealed ball bearing and an extra long sintered bushing
  • Special oil tract improves lubrication to the distributor and cam gear
  • O-ring seals can be installed for oil pressure control (modified blocks only)
  • Adjustable slip collar mounting flange for engines with modified deck heights
  • Will not accept a vacuum advance canister
