Big improvement

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Used this product to upgrade the ignition on my '65 El Camino and can't believe the difference! Better at idle, smooth acceleration all the way up the power curve, etc. It's a bolt in replacement, no customization, so no worries to buy for a collector car!

The Best!

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8362
This is a great product! It comes as a unit, meaning it has everything you need, coil, cap, rotor, and all of the internals. All the installer needs to do is line it up to the proper timing, plug 12v into it and enjoy the sound of the engine. The price cannot be beat as far as stock replacements are concerned. To top that off it will perform better than a stock replacement. To top it off its made by MSD. ...read more

This is a great product. Works very good. Only complaint is it does not have the MSD cover. Not sure why MSD wouldn't throw one in.

easy install. Made engine perform. Stock distributor not enough. Make sure you have a degree timing light or timing tape. If not you will not get what this dist. should be.

What a difference!

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8362
Finally gave up on the old points and went HEI. Ease of installation and adjustment. The advance curve as it was set out of the box worked perfectly (although I did get an advance kit... maybe for a later day). Vac advance limiter was simple to install and my project is purring right along.

Best to avoid.

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

Getting to the point, my 37 year old original HEI unit worked better. I experienced somewhat erratic timing and a lack of spark intermittently on most wires. Both issues were not consistent, but enough to notice and make proper timing very difficult. After checking the usual suspects, I pulled this Distributor and replaced it with my old one - no other changes - Spark issues resolved and the timing was much improved. I can't say for sure what the issue was, but a 37 year old HEI unit fixed them - and that was with worn weight bushings, an ancient module and coil of the same general vintage. So something about this low-budget MSD unit was very off. In addition, the MSD unit does not come with an adjustable advance. It LOOKS like one, but isn't. It does have an advance limiter plate - useful, but does not replace the adjustable advance. The limiter plate limits the degrees of advance, while the adjustable advance controls how much vacuum is required to actuate the unit. ...read more

Will not fit.

Even though it tells you it will fit a 350 El Camino (1971) it will not. Granted it would in a 350, but it's to tight of s fit. With out making a mod to the firewall.

Great product. Be care of ignition module, if it is BLACK it is from China and fail. You may need to change.

Great Product- .491" Shaft Diameter

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8362
It should be noted that the shaft diameter is .491". I had to change the gear to melonized for my roller cam and bought the only available MSD melonized product, which was .500" shaft diameter. Only upon installation did I realize there was a difference of .008". I had read that all MSD dizzys have .500" shafts.. "don't believe what you read on the internet". ...read more
