    My search skills suck at best!
    Is there a small V8 cap with male terminals? HEI style??
    Thanks for your time

    I bought one of these a while back, worked good the problem was I could not get replacement part's.
    MSD is so damn expensive.

    I have one of these in my 26T coupe, SBC 355. Chinese made. ProComp, I think. It works OK. Replacement caps and rotors are available through Summit. The vacuum and mechanical advance both pull in about 22 degrees. Too much on both. I can't even get it apart to change or limit either advance mechanism. Can't get a good ignition curve set. It is getting replaced with a Dave's Small Cap HEI. A points distributor converted to HEI with adjustable advance curves.

    MSD = big bucks. $43 dollars.

    You can buy cap and rotor also off eBay and most swap meets sell the modules for $10... I've run one on my avatar for 4 years.. I do carry an extra module, but not needed yet. s-l1600 (1).jpg

    Dang, I just went to a thread I'd saved here about the same thing, a quality unit for around 130-140$, just clicked on it and got HAMB ERROR, must have strayed OT I guess.

    "saltflats", it's an HEI distributor on its own.. Not a conversion... Cap, rotor and module are all specific to this type of distributor but extras can be bought for it...
