To accommodate induction setups and tight engine compartments the billet housing on this distributor is 5/8” smaller in diameter than its factory counterpart. A maintenance-free magnetic pickup is responsible for triggering the high voltage sparks while a sealed ball bearing guides the oversized shaft.

Under the distributor cap and race rotor you’ll find MSD’s accurate mechanical advance assembly. To easily tune a curve to match your needs, different advance springs and stop bushings are supplied. Plus, there is a vacuum advance canister to increase economy on long drives. The easy-to-set rev limiter and vacuum advance canister increase overall economy on long drives.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great performance This does everything it says it will. I’m very happy. I will never have to worry about getting enough spark from this beast. I had thought I was going to use my old plug wires, but I was mistaken because they did not fit. I ordered the wires they recommended. It’s a little pricey but worth every dime. All I can say is WOW, very impressed.

HI, Im gonna buy a Edlebrock top end engine 2027 for my standard 289 1966. Does this distributor work fine, is it an electronical distributor, does it need to be connect to the carburetor with a vaccum line? Thanks.

Asked by: jean bruno
This will work fine with your application. It is a electronic ignition type of distributor(no points), this will need a ported vacuum source from the carb.
