    • Product Details

      Part No.8552

      Warranty Details (90 DAY REPLACEMENT IF DEFECTIVE)

      If you're looking for a performance distributor for your Buick or Nailhead your search is over! MSD's Ready-to-Run distributor 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. Not only do you get the benefits of electronic triggering, but your engine will awaken with the powerful sparks from the ignition module. This module delivers up to 7.5 A to the coil creating a stout inductive spark. This improves combustion of the fuel mixture resulting in quick starts, a smooth idle and great performance! Another advantage of an MSD distributor is the accurate and adjustable mechanical advance assembly. The advance curve is easy to adjust with different advance springs and stop bushings which are included. To top it off there is a vacuum advance canister and MSD's strong cap and wire retainer.

      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
      • 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
      • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from chromoly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction
