    MSD Ignition Distributor, Ford 2.3L

    Part #8473
    • Product Details

      Part No.8473

      Warranty Details (90 DAY REPLACEMENT IF DEFECTIVE)

      This distributor features an aluminum housing that is CNC-machined for closer tolerances than any conventional cast distributor. Plus you get an adjustable mechanical advance which can be easily tailored to any engine by changing the stop bushing and advance springs. Triggering the MSD Ignition system is the same high-output magnetic pickup that is used in our racing distributors. This pickup produces an extremely accurate trigger signal and is maintenance-free.

      Product Features:

      • Durable DuPont Rynite base
      • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance is mounted on top of the shaft
      • Supplied springs and stop bushings to create a variety of timing curves
      • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and DuPont Rynite 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
      • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out for crank trigger systems
