  • Direct drop-in replacement for easy plug and play installation
  • Chevy comes standard with polished housing finish
  • Made in U.S.A.

Distributors wear out just like the rest of your engine. The bushings wear, letting the shaft wobble around. That lets the spark timing wander all around, costing power and potentially causing misfires. A really bad bushing will let oil seep up the shaft, dousing the electronics. Even if the bushings are only a little worn, the mechanical and vacuum advance mechanisms can wear, getting sloppy or sticking. Springs lose tension, pivots wear, counterweights stick. Sure, you can rebuild it with new bushings, new springs and all the fussy little parts – but are you sure the last guy wasn’t tinkering around inside there? Instead, drop in a new Taylor Cable distributor.

This street HEI distributor comes with all new parts, including new mechanical advance and adjustable vacuum advance, a new 50KV coil, cap and rotor. There’s a new steel gear pinned to the bottom, compatible with the steel timing gears on modern roller cams. Still, it’s a direct replacement, so installation is a drop-in deal: set the engine to TDC #1, install the distributor with the rotor indexed to #1, and fire it up and set the timing. This distributor will reliably fire the plugs up to 6500RPM, more than adequate for any street motor.
