Ford HEI Distributors
Retro Rockets is an authorized PerTronix dealer.

     PerTronix now offers HEI distributors for Ford small block 221, 260, 289, and 302 cu.in. engines (not available for the 351 cu. in.).  These complete distributors use the same proven high performance components as in the PerTronix GM HEIs.  They are available in a street/strip version and a race-only version.

Note:  The Ford HEI distributors are larger in diameter than points distributors.  You must have about 1.5" clearance around your points distributor to avoid an interference.

Suppression-type spark plug wires required.  Do not use solid core wires.
