    • Product Details

      Part No.8566

      Warranty Details (90 DAY REPLACEMENT IF DEFECTIVE)

      Sharing the CNC machining techniques with the rest of the MSD distributor line, the Oldsmobile housing is machined from high quality 6061-T6 aluminum. Adding to this strength are two sealed ball bearings that guide the 0.500 In. shaft accurately through 10,000+ RPM. Tig welded on top of the polished steel shaft is MSD's adjustable mechanical advance assembly. To accurately trigger the ignition, a high-output magnetic pick-up is bolted to the base. This trigger pick-up produces a precise trigger signal. An MSD red cap with brass terminals and race rotor are supplied.

      Product Features:

      • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
      • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
      • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the RPM range
      • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by two sealed ball bearings
      • 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
      • Advance weight pins are staked and tig welded to the plate
      • Nylon pads ensure smooth operation of the advance weights
