Ford V8, 351C, 400, 429, 460, No Vac. Adv. Billet Ford V8 For Ford enthusiasts that are serious about performance, this MSD Ignition 8580 Billet Distributor has precision tolerances, high strength and incredible endurance.

Just under the brass terminals of the cap and rotor is an easy-to-adjust mechanical advance assembly. The MSD 8580 assembly is fine blanked from chrome moly steel, tig welded for strength plus receives a QPQ coating. The precision weights glide on nylon bushings for smooth advancement and different springs and stop bushings are supplied so a variety of advance curves can be tuned.

The steel shaft that spins the advance and reluctor receives a friction reducing coating plus is guided by a sealed ball bearing. This combination provides stable timing signals and spark delivery at any rpm. Triggering chores are handled by MSD's race proven, maintenance-free magnetic pickup.

For maximum protection against crossfire, the Billet Ford V8 Distributors are equipped with a large cap that has "spark plug" style terminals for secure wire attachment. On applications with limited space around the distributor, you can use MSD distributor cap PN 8433 and the PN 8467 rotor.

NOTE: MSD Ignition 8580 Must be used with an MSD 6, 7, 8 or 10 Series Ignition. Supplied with cap and rotor.

NOTE: MSD 8580 will not clear some factory style Shaker Hood Scoops.
