Check Vehicle Fit

Do yourself and your poncho a favor and replace your points distributor with a Ready-to-Run model. You’ll never have to adjust or replace the points again and your car will run better thanks to the hot MSD sparks. Inside the CNC-machined billet housing the unit incorporates a magnetic pickup that never wears out. Plus, the distributor has a built in ignition module so there is no need to mount an external MSD Ignition control. The module delivers up to 7.5 A to the coil creating a stout inductive spark. Not only do you get the benefits of electronic triggering, but your engine will awaken with powerful sparks from the ignition module. This improves combustion of the fuel mixture resulting in quick starts, a smooth idle and great performance.

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 with supplied 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 a sealed ball bearing
