If you're looking for a performance distributor for your Nailhead your search is over! MSD's Ready-to-Run Distributor incorporates a magnetic pickup 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 and no MSD Ignition control is required. 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! Another advantage of an MSD Distributor is the accurate and adjustable mechanical advance assembly. The advance curve is easy to adjust with different advance springs and stop bushings which are included. To top it off there is a vacuum advance canister and MSD's strong cap and wire retainer. The Ready-to-Run Distributor comes with a matching 3-pin harness making installation simple. All that it takes is routing two wires to the coil and one to ground!
Features:
  • Simple and clean installation with only three wires to connect
  • Includes built-in Rev Limiter!
  • Does not require an MSD Ignition Control
  • Supplied with an HEI style distributor cap and rotor (accepts Cap-A-Dapts)
  • Mechanical advance assembly can be locked out for crank trigger systems

  • Polished steel shaft is QPQ coated and guided by a sealed ball bearing
  • Maintenance-free magnetic pickup and precision reluctor create stable trigger signals throughout the rpm range
  • CNC machined billet aluminum housing and billet aluminum base
  • Vacuum advance canister for improved economy (can be locked out)
  • Easy-to-adjust mechanical advance with supplied springs and stop bushings
  • Powerful built-in module produces a 7.5 amp single spark through high rpm
