Distributor with no vacuum advance
Permalink  
 


I purchased a new distributor to replace my big GM HEI. 

this one has no external vacuum advance. I understand I somehow it works mechanically Inside. 

I was just looking to learn a bit how these work. 

Rookie in training :)

thanks

Al,

Very simple....you need to a set of points, condenser, rotor and distributor cap. I would highly recommend you replace the cam gear on the bottom of the distributor. Very inexpensive.

There are thousand of videos on the web that can explain to you how it all works.....here is just a few.

It is not a MSD.
A copy.


Are these styles Plug and play.
