MSD 85561 Chevy Billet Distributor with Slip Collar
Chevy Small Block V8, Chevy Big Block V8, External Ignition Box Required, HEI / Male Cap Type
If you have a slightly taller block or have decked the heads, the distance between the distributor mounting pad and the cam gear/oil pump drive may be different. MSD offers these Distributor with an adjustable slip collar with 1.5” of adjustment so you can be sure the distributor is installed correctly. The distributor shares the same features of the standard Pro-Billet Chevrolet model including a ball bearing guide, long sintered lower bushing, oil seal, and an adjustable mechanical advance assembly. The maintenance-free magnetic pick-up in the billet base of the distributor triggers the MSD CD Ignition box (not included). Fits Small Block or Big Block Chevy V8.
