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.
