    MSD Ignition Distributor, Ford 351W, Crank Trigger

    Part #8378
    • Product Details

      Part No.8378

      Warranty Details (90 DAY REPLACEMENT IF DEFECTIVE)

      Blue oval racers will be happy to see these crank trigger distributors. The housing of these three distributors are standard-height Ford distributors so they will work with cast intake manifolds. These distributors have a low-profile cap assembly to clear busy intake set-ups and are topped with MSD's new Rynite-molded ford-style cap and wire retainer. The low design is accomplished because the only thing under the cap is a rotor! These distributors don't have an advance assembly or pick-up so they must be used with a crank trigger. Since these distributors are designed for racing applications, a ball bearing is pressed into the housing to guide the polished steel shaft. Each distributor is supplied with a bronze gear.

      Product Features:

      • Advanced optical encoder trigger design for accuracy and reliability
      • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and DuPont Rynite base
      • Polished steel shaft with a QPQ coating for friction reduction
      • Shaft is guided by a sealed ball bearing
      • Must be used with an MSD crank trigger and MSD Ignition control
      • Supplied with a large diameter HEI style distributor cap and rotor
      • Supplied with bronze gear
      • No CARB exemption order number
