THIS IS THE COMPLETE DISTRIBUTOR BODY, SHAFT, GEAR, 65K COIL, CAP, ROTOR BUTTON

Read some of our past feedback on those that have purchased this unit, and you will be convinced of it's quality, and value.

THIS IS THE NEWEST VERSION ON THE MARKET. THIS UNIT HAS A PERFECTED MODULE SYSTEM VIRTUALLY ELIMINATING FAILURES, AS WELL AS THE NEW 50K COIL!! THIS COIL IS ESSENTIAL ON ANY MODIFIED ENGINE.

BRAND NEW IN THE BOX. FIRST LINE ITEM.

Installation instructions.

1.    Unpack the distributor carefully and inspect it for possible shipping damage.  Inspect again after removing the cap.

2.    If the distributor to be replaced has not already been removed from the engine, remove its cap.  On GM HEI distributor, unplug the pickup to coil harness from the cap.  Do not remove the plug wire at this time.  Crank the engine slowly until the rotor blade aims a fix point on the engine or firewall.  Note this point for future reference.

3.    Find the connector in the wiring from the distributor to the ignition switch, and unplug it.

4.    Note the exact position of the vacuum advance canister.  Put a reference mark on the engine or firewall so that the new distributor may be easily installed in the same position.

5.    Loosen and remove the distributor hold-down bolt and clamp.  Lift the old distributor out.  If the engine had been running within the past few minutes, the distributor housing may be hot and coated with hot engine oil.  Wrap a shop towel around the distributor to avoid burning your hands and dripping oil.

6.    Lower the new distributor into position.  The rotor should be aimed at the same fixed point as was the rotor of the old distributor, and the vacuum canister aligned with the reference mark.  After the new distributor has been lowered into place, you may find that it hasn’t seated firmly against the support boss.  This indicates that the lower end of the distributor shaft is not properly aligned with the oil pump drive rod.  Do not attempt to force the distributor into position.

7.    Reinstall the hold-down clamp and thread the bolt just enough to exert a very slight pressure against the distributor.  If the distributor was not firmly seated, manually rotate the engine until the distributor drop down into place.

8.    With the distributor properly seated, tighten the hold-down bold just enough so that the distributor is held in place but can still be rotated with a little effort.  Again, make sure that the vacuum canister is aligned with the reference mark.

9.    Remove the plug wires one at a time from the old cap and install them in the corresponding positions of the new one (on GM HEI distributors, it will also be necessary to transfer the coil and coil cover from the old cap to the new one).  After all wires have been transferred, verify that the wire in the terminal post that is aligned with the rotor leads to number one cylinder.  If you are unsure of cylinder number position or firing order, this information can be found in the service manual that covers your particular engine.  Put on the distributor cap.

10. Reconnect the wiring leading from the distributor to the ignition switch.  On GM HEI distributors, plug the pickup lead connector into the new distributor cap.

11. Connect timing light.  Start the engine and allow it to warm up sufficiently to idle smoothly.  It may be necessary to rotate the distributor (either clockwise or counter-clockwise) before a smooth idle can be achieved.  If the engine will not idle smoothly, the firing order may be incorrect or the rotor may not have been properly aligned during installation.  Consult a service manual for corrective procedure.

12. Consult the appropriate service manual to determine the factory-recommended initial timing and idle speed.  Set initial spark timing with the vacuum advance line disconnected and plugged.  Advancing timing two to four degrees from the factory setting will usually provide improved performance and fuel economy.  However, timing advance beyond factory specification may result in detonation, which can cause engine damage.  Listen carefully.  If you hear the engine knocking or pinging, retard initial timing as required to eliminate it.

13 If you are converting from points to HEI, be sure that the your new unit is supplied with a full 12 volt power source. All point systems had a ballast resister that reduced voltage to around 6-8 volts. These resisters were often in the wire harness coming from the starter, and this must be eliminated. Test your power source to be sure your feeding the new HEI unit a full 12 volts. You will also need a spade terminal to tap your power source into the new unit.  You can find such terminals at any hardware or auto supply. See our other listings for many HEI accessories.

THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE COMPLETE HEI DISTRIBUTOR, CAP, ROTOR, DIST. BODY, GEAR, AND SHAFT. EVERYTHING YOU NEED IS WITH IT. 

 THIS HEI FITS MOST SMALL AND BIG BLOCK CHEVY ENGINES FROM 55 UP TO 86. BB & SB!!!

Will also fit later V-8 engines that have converted to carburetor.

Notice the precision machine work the distributor body has. Many others are not like this. We have been very selective on our choice, as there are many HEI's on the market.

We have sold this same unit at our store for several years, and have many high performance engines in this area running this unit. The only difference is this is a much improved model.

We are in the performance business.

 Our company president, Skip W. strongly recommends the universal 90 degree wires, as they will fit perfect. The universal Mega fire wires will only require one of the ends to be assembled. Seems most ready cut wires are never the perfect length for every engine. A plug wire crimper should be used. The extra 30 minutes or so of work to install universal wires are well worth it.

This distributor will fit all Chevy V-8 carburated engines up to 1986 . It will fit earlier model engines equipped with point style distributors. Fire wall clearance may be an issue on some early model cars, but we have found many to fit with good clearance.

  • Fully CNC Machined - Polished Housing
  • Adjustable vacuum advance canister to improve economy while cruising
  • Premium caps with brass terminals, and a low-saturation Ignition module
  • It also offers true spark alignment for instantaneous response at high RPM


  •  EMAIL US IF YOU HAVE ANY TECHNICAL QUESTIONS

We offer a lifetime warranty on this distributor.

This is the perfect upgrade for your classic Chevy, or just part of a tune-up. It would not be practical to re-install the original HEI back into your engine if you are overhauling it.

Here are a few problems you are most likely to encounter, when using an old distributor.

excessive end shaft play

bushing wear

weak coil, worn or cracked cap, and button

weak module

corrosion buildup

weakened advance springs

gear wear

if going from points to HEI this alone is a huge upgrade

All of the above can greatly affect the performance of your engine.

These are just a few of the things that most old distributors have going on with them. For the low cost of a complete brand new one, it just makes little sense to used the original distributor. When we rebuild any early model Chevy engine, we insist the customer purchase a new distributor. You will notice a performance difference in your engine if you have any of the above issues with your old distributor. All of the old HEI's we see have excess end play in the shaft. I'm sure the coils on them are not at full voltage. This is much more than the oem model. All car makers have dramatically improved the ignition systems on cars and trucks. This is an indication of how important good ignition is to an engine.

Below is a picture to give you an idea of what the distributor will look like in the engine.

I consider this the absolute best mod you can do to your engine for under $55.00 WE HAVE THE LOWEST SHIPPING RATES ON THIS UNIT.
