        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.

A great new feature is the two piece adjustable rotor that is supplied. This assists in setting up the proper rotor phasing for accurate timing and spark control. Each Cam Sync Distributor is topped with MSD's adjustable two piece rotor to provide rotor phasing adjustments. This distributor must be used with an MSD 6, 7, 8 or 10-Series Ignition.

This kit allows you to change the amount of ignition vacuum advance for maximum part-throttle performance while preventing the harmful effects of spark knock (detonation). Dial in as much spark advance as conditions permit — add more advance under light load conditions to improve throttle response and fuel economy, or limit spark advance in high compression engines and high load conditions to eliminate knock.

                      MSDs Pro-Billet Front Drive distributor is the solution for race engines that dont have room for a standard distributor due to firewall clearance or intake combinations. The MSD Front Drive distributor is belt-driven from a pulley installed on the camshaft. For increased strength and durability a 9mm belt is used which is wider than any other drive assembly. The distributor head is CNC-machined from a billet of aluminum and is secured to a strong precision bracket. This system is an extremely accurate way to distribute the spark energy from your MSD Ignition! We revised the front drive with our standard Ford-style cap and rotor. This creates a downsized package for an easier fit in tight engine compartments. The Front Drive distributor is supplied with mounting bolts, cam pulley and drive belt.
