    40500 is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Seems like a good distributor Fit and finish is excellent. The true test will be mileage. So far I only have break-in time on this distributor but it's running great out of the box.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Unit Bought this as a less expensive alternative to an MP billit unit as the Proform unit I purchased broke up badly starting at 3,000 RPM. This unit performed well and picked up~10 HP over a stock unit on the dyno on my Mopar 392 Poly Stroker
    Date published: 2015-03-28
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Tragic flaw sinks otherwise fine distributor I bought this because it looked like a good unit and the price was right. It Installed easily and ran fine. First time I went to remove the cap, one of the spring-steel hold down clamps broke right at the twisted end. No sweat (I thought) it's a JEGs brand. they'll have me another hold down in no time. Not the case. Somehow, they don't carry that part. What? They said they'll try to scare one up, but if not I have to send the whole thing back and wait for a replacement. I need my car. I figured, "I know I'll take one (a hold down) off of this MSD Billet distributor I have on another (different type) motor". Nope. MSD uses a different, vastly superior way of holding on the cap. This JEGs unit just kind of resembles those higher quality ones. If the simple hold-downs can't be trusted, I have little faith in the interior workings spinning around at thousands of RPM. JEGs may find the part so I can fix it, but I can't recommend somebody else buying one of these. You get what you pay for, I suppose.
