MSD 8485 Billet distributor.
Fits VW Type 1 air cooled.

MSD has designed this billet distributor for the popular Type 1 engine using technology gained from building distributors for off-road and NASCAR racers. A maintenance-free magnetic pickup triggers the MSD ignition. This pickup is accurate to within 1 degree at any rpm so you won't have to worry about points float or stutters at top end speeds. The pickup is triggered by a precision reluctor that is attached to a hardened steel shaft. For increased stability, a sealed ball bearing is used to guide the shaft. Since every engine application is different, the MSD billet distributor features an easy-to-adjust mechanical advance assembly that works by simply changing the advance springs and stop bushings.


Includes cap and rotor.
Does not accept vacuum advance.
Requires the use of an MSD 6, SCI, or 7 series ignition control.
MSD 3193, or MSD 31939, wire sets recommended.
