MSD 8579 "Pro-Billet" small diameter distributor.
Fits 289 - 302 cu.in. Ford V8s.

This distributor was designed for racers and street rodders that have space limitations due to blowers, or oversized intake manifolds such as tunnel rams. The distributor is 5/8" smaller in diameter and almost 1" shorter than a standard distributor to provide extra room at the front of the engine. In spite of its small size it still features a high output magnetic pickup and precision machined reluctor for accurate ignition triggering. A fully adjustable mechanical advance enables you to tailor the advance curve to your specific application using the included springs and stop bushings. The small diameter cap is molded out of durable Rynite material and comes with an optional wire retainer.

Requires the use of an MSD 6, 7, 8, or 10 Series ignition control.
