Overview

Finally an answer for your AMC’s worn out breaker points distributor! This Ready-to-Run Pro-Billet Distributor has a built-in inductive module that produces up to 7.5 amps to create a high voltage spark at the plug. This spark improves combustion of the fuel mixture resulting in quick starts, a smooth idle and great performance. Since this distributor has its own ignition module there is no need to run an MSD Ignition Control. Installation of the distributor is simple with only three wires to connect with the supplied Weathertight harness. Under the MSD cap there is a mechanical advance assembly that can easily be tuned to your engine’s specifications. Different advance springs and stop bushings are supplied, giving you 24 curves to choose from. The Ready-to-Run AMC distributor also has a vacuum advance canister and is supplied with everything you need for installation!

  • Simple and clean installation with only three wires to connect
  • CARB E.O. Approved
