MSD Pro-Billet distributors share the same CNC machining techniques as the rest of the MSD distributor line. They feature a housing that is machined from high-quality 6061-T6 aluminum for durability and show-quality looks. Their oversized shaft receives a QPQ coating for friction reduction and corrosion resistance, with the added strength of two sealed ball bearings that guide the shaft accurately at well over 10,000 rpm. An extra-long sintered bushing replaces the ball bearing at the bottom of Chevrolet models. TIG-welded on top of the polished steel shaft is MSD's accurate mechanical advance assembly. The weights are supported by nylon pads that allow the advance to operate smoothly throughout the rpm range. For all-out racing, the advance mechanism can also be easily locked out. To accurately trigger the ignition, a high-output magnetic pickup is bolted to the base. This pickup produces a precise trigger signal that will never vary more than one degree at any rpm. A durable gear is installed for performance applications, and an MSD red cap with brass terminals and race rotor is supplied. They're available in standard and small diameter models for applications with limited clearance, and require the use of a separate ignition box such as an MSD 6, 7, 8, or 10 Series ignition.

MSD Pro Billet 8578

Looking forward to getting this installed. Finish and detail are very high quality. The smaller size is handy. I expect this Distributor to give me long dependable service. I am disappointed however that in order to use to Distributor with my Roller Cam, I have to purchase an expensive replacement drive gear. Then pay to get it installed. The value kind of disappears all of a sudden. Another little twist. Why doesn't MSD offer this Distributor with the Melonized Gear installed. Lots of Guys are building Roller motors. ...read more

It fits it works. Disappointed that you have to buy a steel gear for a roller cam, instead of a purchase option. Otherwise it's an MSD, enough said.
