    • Product Details

      Part No.8570

      Warranty Details (90 DAY REPLACEMENT IF DEFECTIVE)

      This distributor was designed for racers and street rodder that have space limitations due to firewall interference, blowers or oversized intake manifolds such as tunnel rams. The distributor is 3/8 In. narrower and almost 1 In. shorter than a standard distributor. Proven performance features include a high output magnetic pick-up and precision machined reluctor for accurate ignition triggering. A fully adjustable mechanical advance allows you to tailor the advance curve to your specific application. Topping it all off is our own small diameter cap. This is molded out of durable Rynite® material and comes with an optional wire retainer.

      Product Features:

      • CNC machined billet aluminum housing is 3/8 In. smaller in diameter and 7/8 In. shorter than conventional Chevy V-8 distributors with the points type cap
      • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the RPM range
      • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
      • Adjustable slip collar mounting flange for engines with modified deck heights
      • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by a sealed ball bearing and extra long sintered bushing
      • Advance plate and weights are fine blanked from chrome chromoly steel and QPQ coated for friction reduction
      • Advance weight pins are staked and tig welded to the plate
      • Nylon pads ensure smooth operation of the advance weights
