    The cap and rotor of any ignition system must be considered mainte­nance items. Just as you change the oil and filter of your car, you should always replace the cap and rotor as a set. To make things easy, we now offer these Cap and Rotor Replacement Kits.

    This MSD Cap (MSD #84335) fits all of the MSD Distributors that use the GM Socket sytle cap (MSD #8437). It will also fit GM Distributors that use a "window" style cap. 

    Cap MSD# 8433:

    • DuPont Rynite material
    • Spark plug-style terminals with improved locking connection
    • Optional wire retainer with caps to lock the wires in place
    • HEI-Type terminals, rather than socket-type
    • Can be used in place of the older design

    Rotor MSD# 8467:

    • Standard on most MSD Pro-Billet Distributors
    • Injection molded from Rynite material for incredible strength and high dielectric properties
    • Stainless steel/brass rotor trip - screwed in place to handle extreme rpm and high heat conditions
    • Deep molded vanes to stir up the air inside the cap to prevent spark ionization
    • Screws are set deep in the housing to prevent spark scatter

    Sometimes we want to mix and match parts different than Henry planned. These spacers allow you to swap distributors around on your flathead. This adaptor fits most aftermarket performance cams. In some cases, earlier stock engines may have a "shallow-nose" camshaft. If that is the case, the drive tang on the distributor will not contact the slot in the cam and the distributor will spin freely after installation. Should this occur, you will need to purchase a cam button spacer such as Speedway # 910-12710.

    You can't go wrong with the best selling MSD Billet Distributor! The housing is machined from a billet of 6061-T6 aluminum on a state-of-the-art CNC machine producing exact tolerances. For high rpm stability, a .500” steel shaft is supported by a sealed ball bearing and a long sintered bushing. This shaft also receives a QPQ coating for friction reduction and resistance to corrosion. A precision machined reluctor is attached to the shaft which triggers the magnetic pick-up mounted in the housing. This high output magnetic pick-up is the most accurate way to trigger your ignition. Plus, with no moving parts to wear or adjust, the pick-up is maintenance free! Just above the pick-up is MSD’s adjustable mechanical advance assembly. Different springs and stop bushings are supplied so you can tune an advance curve to match your application.

    Fits Small Block or Big Block Chevy V8.
