MSD Pro-Billet distributors share the same CNC machining techniques as the rest of the MSD distributor line. They feature a housing that's 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.

Q:

Hello
I am looking for an electric ignition for my Ford Thunderbird. I wanted to ask if I could use these? I have a PerTronix Flame-Thrower II Ignition Coil, do both of these components work together? Do I have to pay attention to the ignition cables? Thanks for your help, best regards from Switzerland

Asked by STEVE on January 09, 2019

A:

Steve, if you are replacing the factory magnetic pickup distributor and continuing to use the factory DuraSpark ignition module then this will work fine.

Q:

Will this work to hook up a fi-tech system

Asked by WESTON on October 01, 2018

A:

Fi-tech also makes several engine management systems, one that uses the built-in crank trigger (that doesn’t have a distributor) and the other that does require a distributor. The system that requires a distributor will work with this distributor (2 wire magnetic pick-up). Phasing your distributor for
Programmable Timing Locking the distributor:
When using the Go EFI internal timing control feature it is important to lock out the distributor advance mechanism and phase the rotor on your distributor. You will need a 2-wire distributor with a magnetic pickup such as an MSD or equal aftermarket brands from Summit

Fits in my 75 390fe like a glove.Just switched from points. Man I should have done this so many years ago. What a huge difference. I Tried 2 other distributos before this one from others people's suggestions. The (Procomp) what a complete joke. This thing isn't made very well. Stay away from this one. (Mallory) it worked ok. This MSD was the solution. You want be disappointed. Used it with a CD street fire. Of course new coil, new plugs and wires. Fired right up and performs great. ...read more

I bought this distributor to replace my Mallory, in my 67 Mustang street car. This piece is high quality,and easy to program. It is really made more for performance or racing as it has no vacuum advance. AND it is designed ONLY to work with an MSD box. You will need the long cable for a simple plug in at both ends. Read the specs. I also had to change the ignition wire ends to fit the cap on this distributor. Depends which type you already have. Overall an excellent product. ...read more

My mechanic specified this MSD distributor as part of the ignition system upgrade for my Ford FE-390. I'm very, very pleased with the result - more power, improved fuel economy, etc. MSD ROCKS!

Pretty Much Only FE Block Distributor Available

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

MSD-8594
It pretty good. MUCH better than a Mallory. Plus "plug and play" with my other MSD components, so I'm pretty much bound to it. Contacts on distributor cap are not as beefy as I would like and there is not heavy duty/purer metal option, which I would love to be able to buy.
