Re: Hei Distributor

That sounds like a pro-comp distributor. Stay as far away as possible from them. They have a terrible reputation. I had one of their HEI coil in cap distributors and it was the dodgiest thing ever, worst build quality ever, very cheaply made no doubt. Wasn't untill after i bought one that i heard about how bad they are.

Re: Hei Distributor

[Hi,
whats actually wrong with the Pro Comp? Is it the two part shaft? Is there a diferance betweenthe Aust and USA versions?
I also have a Pro Comp and have yet to fit it. From what you are saying I should get rid of it fast.
What is a good alternative, with out spending a heap of money
Andrew
