These MSD Pro-Billet Street distributors are popular routes for people looking for race-proven performance for their street machine. A vacuum advance canister provides improved economy, and the proven MSD mechanical advance mechanism gives you the opportunity to dial in a timing curve to fit your needs. As always, an advance kit of springs and stop bushings is included. The housing features an all-billet 6061-T6 aluminum design for accuracy to within .001 in. An oversized steel shaft is QPQ-coated for low friction, and rides in sealed ball bearings at the top and bottom of the distributor. An extra-long sintered bushing replaces the ball bearing at the bottom for Chevrolet models. This combination keeps the shaft steady, creating accurate spark delivery at any rpm. They rely on a magnetic pickup to trigger the MSD ignition control, which delivers the powerful sparks to the coil. This pickup is extremely accurate and never needs adjusting. The distributors are CARB E.O. approved for use in all 50 states, and are guaranteed to deliver race-quality performance for your ride. These distributors require the use of a separate ignition box, such as an MSD 6, 7, 8, or 10 Series ignition.

Works well but. there are some considerations
The distributor is a beauty. You do have to consider the quality of your plug wires and the close proximity of them in the cap. I found that the MSD adapter and wide late Ford style cap worked on my engine and better. Additionally, the original supplied cap has no vent and rust will 'happen' inside. A hole can be carefully drilled or that wider arrangement used.
