Check Vehicle Fit

Die hard Oldsmobile enthusiasts have been asking about a Ready-to-Run distributor and here it is! Ready-to-Run means just that, drop it in the engine, connect three wires and fire up your olds. Inside the billet aluminum housing there is a high-output inductive ignition module that lights the spark. This module now has a built-in rev limiter to protect your olds from overrev protection damage. A polished steel shaft spins in the center of this module and is guided by a sealed ball bearing for great stability. Another great benefit of the MSD Ready-to-Run distributor is the mechanical advance. The weights and assembly are fine-blanked from chromoly for absolute precision resulting in smooth timing changes. You can set up a timing curve to match your engine’s specifications easily with the supplied advance springs and bushings plus there is a vacuum advance for economy. The distributor is supplied with the MSD cap, race rotor, wire retainer and gear.

Product Features:
  • Simple and clean installation with only three wires to connect
  • Powerful built-in module produces a 7.5 amp single spark through high RPM
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance supplied with springs and stop bushings
  • Vacuum advance canister for improved economy (can be locked out)
  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the RPM range
  • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by two sealed ball bearings
