Billet Distributor With Ignitor 3 And Black Distributor Cap

Billet distributor fitted with an Ignitor 3 electronic ignition module and a black cap

Plug `n` Play, simply install the distributor in the engine, connect two wires and start up

Designed for maximum ignition performance, replace your outdated points or electronic distributor with this performance proven system, provides huge improvements over points distributors and offers long term trouble free operations.

Ignitor 3 modules provide huge improvments over points distributors:

  • Multiple sparks throughout the entire RPM range
  • Integrated digital REV limiter with LED feedback for precise RPM setting
  • Memory safe function stores settings eliminating unintended changes to Rev limit
  • Adaptive dwell maintains peak energy throughout the entire RPM range, reducing misfires while improving engine performance
  • Peak current level is reached just prior to spark for maximum energy without heat build-up, increasing coil performance and module reliability
  • Adjusts spark timing at higher RPMs to compensate for the inherent electronic delay Senses startup and increases energy for quicker starting
  • Thermal clad surface mount construction for superior reliability
  • Built-in reverse polarity and over current protection shuts down the system, preventing component damage.


  • Precision CNC machined 6061-T6 billet aluminium housing is lightweight yet strong.
  • Each billet distributor is hand polished and buffed to a high luster.
  • Tempered distributor shaft has low torsion displacement for accurate timing and extended operational life.
  • Upper ball bearing and oil impregnated bronze lower bushing work together to reduce friction and provide shaft and advance mechanical stability reducing high RPM vibration.
  • 20CR Steel Gear Heat treated to surface hardness of 45C Rockwell.
  • Precision stamped and balanced mechanical advance weights eliminate erratic timing.
  • Adjustable mechanical advance with proprietary limiting function permits multiple settings.  Distributors are factory set with a performance advance curve and are provided with additional springs for custom advance curves.
  • Premium high dielectric strength cap and rotor manufactured using PBT polymer and brass terminals.

For even more performance, consider adding a compatible Flamethrower coil and a set of Flamethrower HT Leads for increased spark energy and higher RPM potential.
