quality of cheep electronic distributors

Post  maicoman on January 27th 2013, 8:35 am

been shopping for a new electronic dist.there are a few out there that are under $100. some are the old gm hei style with the coil under the cap & some are the ford style that use a sperate coil. they look to be machined well, some have quality caps. I just dont know how good the electrical componetes are.Anyone out there have any feedback? I realy dont want to have to spend $300. on a mallory,acell/msd if I dont have to.

Parts store Duraspark with a recurve........ Better than any of the Chinese BS.

No big deal recurving it your self.

Change the Box connector out for a MSD one and you can run a MSD box with it too.

MSD actually makes an adapter from the duraspark connecter straight to the MSD..

THOSE MSD CONNECTORS ARE CRAP, USE A GOOD WEATHERPACK CONNECTOR.

Some of the cheap ones work great and some of that same brand will screw-up or not work at all.
Are you a gambler...?
