NEW HI-PERFORMANCE RED SMALL BLOCK FORD 221-260-289-302 SMALL CAP HEI DISTRIBUTOR, CHROME 45,000 VOLT COIL AND RED 8MM HI-PERFORMANCE SPIRAL CORE SPARK PLUG WIRES THAT ARE MADE IN U.S.A.!! Brand New Small Block Ford Small Cap HEI Distributor. This distributor is also know as a Ready-To-Run distributor. Distributor cap is RED. DISTRIBUTOR comes with a 3 YEAR WARRANTY!! This distributor requires an external 12 volt coil for electronic ignition and it IS INCLUDED in this listings. Distributor works on SMALL BLOCK FORD 221-260-289-302 from 1962 thru the mid 1980’s that are carbureted. 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 and the coils in Red, Blue, Black or Chrome. If you do not see the color combination you want, just message Dan via eBay. 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. The female cap listings will be on Ebay soon, but are available now by emailing or call Dan at 201-456-0391.
**PLEASE NOTE: YOU MUST RUN EXTERNAL COIL WITH AT LEAST 40,000 VOLT OUTPUT WITH THIS DISTRIBUTOR and it is included. 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”!! This distributor comes with easy instructions and a 3 year warranty. Check out my feedback and buy with confidence. -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 ignition (Typical points coil will not work). No Ballast Resistor is required.
-Easy two wire Hookup (wires included)
-Same as late GM HEIs 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.
– Much better fuel mileage
– Far less pollution, as the fuel is burned much better
– Faster start ups, especially in cold weather
– Those with carburetors 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 CHROME 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. The coil also comes with a 3 year warranty.
Also Includes RED PACKARD WIRE 8mm High Performance Spiral Core Spark Plug wires for SMALL BLOCK FORD applications. Spark plug wires have 135 degree (sometimes called 45 degree) spark plug boots and 90 degree distributor boots that are already factory assembled. Theses 135 Degree boots are very popular with the Small Block Ford 221-260-289-302 Engines. The wires are only 270 Ohms per foot and made in the USA!! The lower the ohms, the higher the performance!! In general, the included set of RED wires will work on Small Block Fords using the HEI (male tower) distributor that is also included in this listing. 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 2 coil wires.
