Back in stock and ready to rock!

Same price as 2-1/2 years ago. How's that for an inflation fighter?

You mentioned earlier that a advance curve kit is commonly available. Yet a 460 ford turns counterclockwise and a standard GM turns clockwise. So wouldn't a standard HEI mechanical advance kit not work because as it spins counterclockwise its going to be locked up?????
Buick, Cadillac, & Chevrolet (8 cylinders) turn clockwise. Oldsmobile & Pontiac turn counterclockwise.

These distributors are proving to be very reliable. Been running one in my own personal car for four years now without a hiccup.

In stock, ready to ship.

All GM engines don't turn the same direction so they designed the advance mechanism to work either way but in order to do so you have to flip over the cam that's in the center of the advance unit. If you have it the wrong direction it will give you a terrible super long advance curve. There are charts on line that show what curves are produced by using different combinations of GM weights and cams. Its always a good idea to grab the GM parts if possible because they are superior to any of the cheap-o aftermarket ones.
