Info

Speedway Motors is excited to offer the MSD Ready-to-Run Distributors for this classic Ford Y-Block engine! These Ford Y-Block distributors are the answer to weak breaker points or rebuilt aftermarket models due to the reliable, maintenance-free magnetic pick-up. Plus, Ready-to-Run distributors do not require an MSD ignition control box, so all you need to do is connect three wires!

  • Simple and clean installation with only three wires to connect
  • Powerful built-in module produces a 7.5 amp single spark through high rpm
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • Vacuum advance canister for improved economy (can be locked out)
  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
  • Housing is 5/8” smaller in diameter than stock Ford distributors
  • 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
  • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out for crank trigger systems
  • Advance weight pins are staked and tig welded to the plate
  • Nylon pads ensure smooth operation of the advance weights
  • Supplied with small diameter cap with HEI style terminals and race rotor (will accept 8441 Cap-A-Dapt)
  • Does not require an MSD Ignition Control
