Replace your tired stock distributor with a brand new Summit® Vortec distributor and you'll get more power than you ever expected out of your ignition at a price that can't be beat. The distributors have heavy-duty features like a balanced rotor, a hardened steel drive gear, aligned bronze oilite bushings for extended street use, and a cast aluminum housing that's machine-finished. They have a magnetic trigger for a consistent, powerful spark and a blue cap with brass terminals for excellent spark transfer. Each distributor is dynamically tested, so you can trust that you're getting a high-quality distributor.

Q:

I had the Summit Racing Vortec distributer installed in my 1997 K1500 5.7 and keeps throwing a correlation code. timing seems to be right but the code will not go away. Any idea why the code appears?

Asked by DEREK on March 09, 2018

A:

You had to put the engine on top dead center first using the crank balancer marks and make sure cyl 1 is on compression stroke. When installing the distributor there is a dimple on the bottom by the gear that u line up with a mark on the dist. shaft. as u drop in the dist. it should fall in place and should line up with a mark located on the housing of the dist. that says 8. if the dist. does not want to fall in place, look at the bottom of the dist and u will see something that resembles screw driver tip (this runs of the oil pump) line that up with the oil pump gear if u look down the dis. hole on the engine block. try re inserting it until it falls flat and the engine light shouldnt come on. if it does then get a shop scanner and set the timing making sure u run the engine between 1000-1200 no more than that.

Q:

I have a GMC K2500 that has a lower mileage 1997 vortec 5.7L that I cannot change the timing on because the hold down has flat edges to hold the distributor in place I bought the distributor new and now realize that it is the wrong one so I am wondering what the hold down on this distributor looks like

Asked by ADAM on January 09, 2017

A:

It looks similar to the factory distributor crows foot, couldn't adjust timing on mine either had to remove some of the material around it so I could move it mine was 29 degrees off, but it works perfect now.

Q:

Does this distributor have vent hole on the housing?

Asked by SCOTT on January 23, 2019

A:

I confirm it does not, however, I was having huge corrosion problems with the oe. I was using a cap and rotor every three months. Over a year now with this one and no issues. I read you needed the vent but in my case it is fine without.

I have a 97 k1500 suburban with 250,000 miles on the original engine, my plastic distributor housing was broken and the drive gear was worn on a few teeth causing my truck to run rough and get very poor fuel mileage. The summit distributor dropped right in with no problems because the timming tab is locked in one position, no need to set it with a scan tool. Great price, great product, as usual with summit. Just make sure you turn the oil pump driveshaft back just a hair so the timming isn't of a tooth. Only took about 30 minutes to install. ...read more

Better than the OE plastic one! Hold down is fixed in place so no need to hook up scanner to get cam and crank sensor timing right.

Summit Racing Tahoe Distributor Replacement by WV

Summit RacingSummit Racing Verified Purchase

SUM-850098
Very high quality. The housing is all aluminum. Much better than factory distributor with all plastic housing and base plate. Replacement was much easier than expected. Summit distributor came with very good installation instructions. Summit distributor dropped right in with no fuss. I did not even have to set the timing because the Summit distributor body is locked by the hold down flange so it does not rotate. Extremely pleased with this Summit distributor. My auto was a 2000 Tahoe Classic with a 5.7L. The plastic base on the original distributor split around the cap hold down screw. Summit distributor cap screws are threaded into aluminum, not plastic. My Tahoe runs perfect. ...read more

I had to replace this distributor because of the way the hold down mount is attached to the housing. Once it was set in the check engine light came on and I couldn't adjust it anymore. Tried moving it over one tooth and the truck wouldn't start.I had to replace it with another distributor which had the oem style hold down and allowed for additional adjustments. ...read more
