    MSD Ignition Distributor, Chevy V8, Locked

    Part #85501
    • Product Details

      Part No.85501

      Warranty Details (90 DAY REPLACEMENT IF DEFECTIVE)

      This strong, billet aluminum distributor is set up for engines that run locked-out timing or an MSD timing computer. With no advance assembly, the rotor plate is welded directly to the oversized shaft. A sealed ball bearing guides the top of the shaft while an extra long sintered bushing stabilizes the lower portion. Trigger signals are produced via a high-output magnetic pick-up. This pickup is extremely accurate and never requires adjustment. Since this distributor is designed primarily for race engines, an oversized (+. 006 In.) bronze gear is installed along with an adjustable slip collar for modified blocks, heads or intake manifolds.

      Product Features:

      • Designed primarily for race applications with no mechanical advance
      • Adjustable slip collar mounting flange for engines with modified deck heights
      • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
      • Magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the RPM range
      • Supplied with a 0.006 In. oversized bronze gear installed
      • Will not accept a vacuum advance canister
      • Supplied with an HEI style distributor cap and rotor accepts cap-a-dapt
      • Must be used with an MSD 6, 7, 8, or 10 series ignition
