Cardone Distributor - Electronic - Remanufactured

Part No. 30-1830 Warranty

Check Vehicle Fit



Product Features:
  • Automated test equipment verifies signal strength, correct polarity of wire harness, air gap, crank reluctor tooth size, as well as ignition coil and pickup performance.
  • Precise machining tolerances prevent oil leakage, poor timing, setting of the "Check Engine" light, and premature failure.
  • Cardone uses the right gear hardness for the appropriate application. If the gear is too hard, it will damage the cam; if it's too soft, the gear itself will be damaged, potentially causing severe engine damage - possibly even engine failure. Many offshore manufacturers use one gear hardness without varying by application as O.E. designs do.
  • O.E. components with consistently high failure rates are 100% replaced or repaired to meet or exceed O.E. performance.
  • All electronic module components are 100% computer tested to ensure full functionality.

    My original distributor had a dust cover around the pick-up area, my replacement didn't but that's no biggie. Sadly these are rebuilt in Mexico, but it worked just fine. Be sure to lube the shaft to reduce heat as suggested in installation paper inside the box.

              I tried 2 of them, first no ingnition at all, put old 250k distributor back in, no problem, so I tried another. It ran about 10 hours, failed, I had to be towed off the road. Would run again cold untill it got hot. failure code 42 from ECM. put old distributor back in. No problems. So not an ECM or wiring short problem. DO NOT BUY this REMAN product

                Comments about Cardone Distributor - Electronic - Remanufactured:

                Wonderful part! Needed a new distributor for my 1990 Iroc Camaro. Old one was rusted and falling apart causing rough idle and stalling when stopped. After 10 minutes pulling the old and installing this distributor then checking the timing, I went for a test drive. Since then she has a smooth idle, increased mpg and raw power and has proven to be one of the best reman-ed products I have ever purchased.

                  Seems to be a good improvement over the OEM design. It looked different enough that I was worried at first it was the right unit, but it appears they redesigned the unit to be totally solid state instead of the strange moving pickup in the original distributor.

                          • Q:

                            Will a bad distributor let the engine run perfect but cause it to cut out when the weather is very warm and the truck has been driven for 25 - 30 miles. Truck runs fine in cool weather and on short trips in hot weather. When it begins to cut out, it gets worse the further you drive it. Cat Conv has been replaced as well as fuel pump, filter, dist. cap,rotor,and wires and timing has been adjusted. Ever seen a distributor cause this condition.
