Small Block Ford 260, 289, 302
Performance HEI Distributor - Big Cap
50,000 Volt Coil
Upgrade your old Ford non computer controlled distributor and get rid of that factory setup with this new HEI conversion distributor. HEI technology provides greater spark with improved starting and throttle response!
Fits small block Ford 221, 260, 289, and 302 Windsor engines. For non-computer controlled carbureted applications. This is a brand new unit with completely new parts. Distributor features a CNC machined billet aluminum housing and a hardened chromoly steel gear. Brass terminal polymer cap with a built in 50,000 volt coil. Also built in is a 7,000 RPM performance 4-pin ignition module. Timing curve is handled by centrifugal mechanical advance plus an adjustable vacuum advance canister.
Distributor installation is simple with just 2 electrical spade connections under the end of the coil cover. One wire for full 12 volt switched power and the other can be used to connect an electronic tachometer. Greatly simplifies underhood wiring by eliminating any factory ballast resistors, resistance wires, or Duraspark/ECU/computer control boxes. Another bonus is that nearly all parts are readily available and will interchange with the GM HEIs: cap, rotor, coil, pickup, module, vacuum canister, etc.
*INSTALLATION NOTE: Due to different shaft lengths, mid-80s and up 5.0L engines originally factory equipped with EFI fuel injection/roller cam will want to use our EFI version HEI distributor instead. Check clearances on your particular application - the HEI large cap is about 5.5" across. When replacing your stock distributor these may not line up with the same rotor location, you may have a new position for the #1 plug wire on the cap and have to adjust the other wires accordingly.
