    Flame-Thrower HEI Distributors

  • Small and Big Block Chevy

    Not for use with solid core spark plug wires

  • Specifications:

    Manufacturer's Part Number:

    Pertronix Flame-Thrower HEI Distributors are built from the ground up with all new components. These high-performance replacements operate without misfire beyond 7500 RPM (nearly 3000 RPM higher than most original HEI distributors). Flame-Thrower HEI Distributors produce 67% more energy with 45% faster spark breakdown compared to stock HEI, which means twice the energy to the spark plugs. Tests show that, with these improvements, wider plug gaps can be used to increase flame kernel growth for more efficient combustion.

  • Lightweight A384 cast aluminum alloy housing
  • Aligned and honed bronze sintered bushings for less friction and longer life
  • Centerless ground corrosion-resistant shaft reduces friction and provides concentric operation
  • Distributor gear is ground to exact tolerances for tighter mesh with cam
  • High dielectric strength cap with solid brass terminals and low resistance center coil brush
  • Balanced rotor with nylon screws prevents arcing and reduces vibration at high RPM
  • Adjustable vacuum advance canister and high-performance advance curve
  • Precision machined chromoly advance weights and center plate eliminate erratic timing
  • Meets stringent automobile susceptibility, vibration, and shock requirements
  • Legal in all 50 states and Canada (C.A.R.B. EO #D-57-5)

  • Some parts are not legal for use in California or other states with similar laws / regulations
