Distributor works on Small Block Chevy 265-283-302-305-307-327-350-400. If you want this distributor & spark plug wires set without a coil, please check out my other listings. I have the distributor in Red, Blue or Black. I also have this same electronic distributor with a female (points style) cap. It has the classic "Points style" look, but is completely electronic.The female cap style distributor and wires are both available in Red, Blue or Black and the coil is chrome. PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST RUN EXTERNAL COIL WITH THIS DISTRIBUTOR and it is included. Coil needs to be 12V and have an output of 40,000 volts or more. This Small Cap HEI Ready-To-Run distributor is made for easy installation. Just hook up the two wires and you are "Ready to Run"!!
Small Cap allows for easy fire wall clearance, especially for Pre-1975 that do may not have the room for a large size HEI. OEM appearance (also available with female cap). Unit is fully CNC machined.Fully self-contained distributor with built in Module. Only requires 12 volt External coil for electronic igniton (Typical points coil will not work). No Ballast Resistor is required. Easy two wire Hookup (wires included). Same as late GM HEI's except you run an external coil instead of In-cap coil. Eliminates the need for all the extra wiring and ballast resistor. Major improvement in starting and performance over points. Built-in GM style module (not made by GM). Spark plug gap can run from around 45-50 instead of 35 if you run points. Same size as the original points distributors and is fully electronic. Far less pollution, as the fuel is burned much better.
Faster start ups, especially in cold weather. Those with carborators prone to flooding will notice a huge difference, as the spark on electronic ignition is many times stronger than point style ignition. Virtually no maintenance, compared to points.
Spark plug life is 3-5 times longer, as well as plug wires. Much better performance, over points, mostly due to the better combustion of unleaded fuel, as this was the primary reason for the development of electronic ignition.
Point dwell changes as points wear out, causing your timing to advance dramatically. This brings your engine much closer to detonation, not to mention hard starting, and poor performance. Over all engine life is much longer with electronic ignition over points. This listing also includes a New RED 12 Volt coil that puts out 45,000 volts.
This coil has the classic "old Skool" look and is oil-filled. This is a perfect coil to run with this electronic distributor. This listing also includes Red PACKARD WIRE 8mm High Performance Spiral Core Spark Plug wires for Small Block Chevy applications. Spark plug wires have 90 degree spark plug boots and 90 degree distributor boots that are already factory assembled.
The wires are only 270 Ohms per foot and made in the USA!! The lower the ohms, the higher the performance!
They have "Higher Temp Gray Spark Plug Boots" that can withstand 50 degrees more heat than standard spark plug boots. The included set of RED wires will work on SMALL BLOCK CHEVY (up until mid/late 1980's) with 262-265-283-302-305-307-327-350-400 engines using the HEI (male tower) distributor that is also included in this listing and routing the wires under the exhaust manifold. These wires are already factory assembled for these engine sizes so you DO NOT cut and crimp on the distributor ends. This set DOES include ONE, not two, coil wires.
The photo shows 2 different coil wires (for you to reference). Both have one male end and one female end. If a coil wire is not selected, I will send you the coil wire with 90 degree boots on both ends. PACKARD WIRE 8mm High Performance Spiral Core Spark Plug Wires have a resistance of ONLY 270 Ohms per foot.Fits the following stock applications. All 40-80 Series & Chassis, w/Hei. All 40-80 Series & Chassis. All 40-80 Series & Chassis, w/4BBL Carb.
