Fit of this part varies by vehicle & equipment specs Type of Fit

Sharing the CNC machining techniques with the rest of the MSD distributor line, the Oldsmobile housing is machined from high quality 6061-T6 aluminum. Adding to this strength are two sealed ball bearings that guide the 0.500 In. shaft accurately through 10,000+ RPM. Tig welded on top of the polished steel shaft is MSD’s adjustable mechanical advance assembly. To accurately trigger the ignition, a high-output magnetic pick-up is bolted to the base. This trigger pick-up produces a precise trigger signal. An MSD red cap with brass terminals and race rotor are supplied.

Product Features:
  • 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
  • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from chromoly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction
  • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out for crank trigger systems
  • Advance weight pins are staked and tig welded to the plate
  • Nylon pads ensure smooth operation of the advance weights
