Summit Racing Blueprinted HEI Distributor

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

SUM-850001R
I recently got my hands on a 69 Chevelle with a original 307 in it. The car had not been started in 19 years. I messed with the original distributor and could not get any spark at the points. I pulled that out and dropped in the new HEI distributor and had it running in 5 minutes. The price was about 65% less for your new distributor than one at my local parts store on top of it. ...read more

Bad coil

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

SUM-850001R
I got the distributor & the coil was bad. I had to use the old coil to get the car running. It took time to troubleshoot & once I found out what it was, I felt very disappointed. I didn't return the distributor because I needed the car & didn't have the time. It seemed like a good value but, it was not.

Good product, you will need distributor gasket and the wiring plug for this product. Otherwise perfect.

this is the most cost effective upgrade possible, just remember to swop out the feed wire from the harness junction block to a 10-12 GA. wire to the distributor, it now runs like a champ.
