MSD's Ready-to-Run Distributor incorporates a magnetic pick-up that never wears out! Plus, the distributor has a built in ignition module so there is no need to mount an external MSD Ignition Control. Not only do you get the benefits of electronic triggering, but your engine will awaken with the powerful sparks from the ignition module. This module delivers up to 7.5 amps to the coil creating a stout inductive spark. This improves combustion of the fuel mixture resulting in quick starts, a smooth idle and great performance!
