Pro Series Ready to Run R2R Distributor For Ford Flathead 239 255 V8 Engine, Black Female Cap
A-Team Performance Pro Series Ready to Run Distributor is perfect for a street performance ignition upgrade. It features a CNC-machined billet aluminum body and hardened steel shaft, with a sealed ball bearing on top and a sintered steel bushing on the bottom. It also comes with a fully adjustable mechanical advance, magnetic pickup trigger, a vacuum advance (not adjustable), and a high-output circuit board module with digital tach output. The dielectric cap comes with solid brass terminals and a color-matched wire retainer.
Fully Adjustable Mechanical Advance
An important feature on all A-Team Performance distributors is the fully adjustable mechanical advance. This allows you to easily modify the distributor to achieve a variety of timing curves. Included with all Pro Series distributors are four bushings of varied size. The bushing determines the mechanical advance the distributor can achieve. Also included are six springs, with two at each level of tension. The springs control the rate at which the distributor reaches the advance.
