The distributor is at the heart of the engine's ignition system. Its 3 basic functions are to trigger the firing of the ignition coil, to control timing advance, and to distribute the coils high voltage output to the individual spark plugs.

With points ignition, the contact points switch the ignition coil's primary circuit. The points are mounted on a movable plate in the distributor housing. Cam lobes on the distributor shaft rotate against a plastic block on the points to open and close the points. Lots to wear out and as you already know they have a tendancy to fail and let you down when you least expect it.

Electronic ignition is the answer for your Holden V8, this distributor contains an inductive pickup, instead of points to generate a signal for the ignition module, which in turn switches the coil. The ignition module itself is mounted on the distributor housing. No need to carry a set of points in the glove box.

This particular Premier Auto Trade distributor suits all Holden V8 Red Motors and will drop straight in with minimal extra wiring. Simply supply a full 12 volts to the positive on the coil.

The Premier distributor uses a female tower distributor cap, unlike most others on the market offering a male cap, meaning you can use your existing ignition leads. The benefit is you don't need to spend any more money on these items.

To get the maximum out of the distributor It is highly recommended to install a 12 Volt Electronic Ignition Coil, which will deliver a higher intensity spark.
