This Pertronix billet distributor allows you to upgrade your outdated points system with a performance proven distributor that features the patented standard Ignitor electronics and a CNC machined 6061 T-6 polished billet housing and deck.
Pertronix electronics are also compatible with any inductive ignition system coil, but high RPM performance can be improved when used with our low resistant (0.6 ohm) Flame-Thrower II coil. If you’re using a multi-spark CD ignition box or a Pertronix Second Strike box, no problem, our distributors are compatible.
Additional features include a tempered .500″ diameter shaft with low torsion displacement; an upper roller bearing and lower self-lubricating oil impregnated copper powder metal bushing and a durable machined heat-treated gear. Distributors come with a factory set performance curve, a mechanical advance limiting adjustment and high dielectric strength cap and rotor.
