Overview

This Chevy distributor is the smallest ever built by MSD! It is specifically designed for racers and street rodders with space limitations due to firewall interference, blowers or oversized intake manifolds such as tunnel rams. It measures 1/2” narrower and over 1” shorter than a standard distributor. Proven performance features include a high output magnetic pick-up and precision machined reluctor for accurate ignition triggering. A fully adjustable mechanical advance allows you to tailor the advance curve to your specific application.

Features:

  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing is 1/2” smaller in diameter and over 1” shorter than conventional Chevy V-8 distributors with the “points” type cap
  • Supplied with small diameter HEI style distributor cap and rotor
  • Will not accept a vacuum advance canister
  • O-ring seals can be added to modified blocks to improve oil pressure control
  • Must be used with an MSD 6, 7, 8, or 10 Series Ignition
  • Special oil tract improves lubrication to the distributor and cam gear
