Upgrading to HEI was one of the best investments I've put on my Jeep. My CJ-5 gets it's fair share of abuse and since this install I haven't had any ignition problems. I used to have moisture issues with the old distributor, even after sealing it with silicone. I'm extremely satisfied with this product. Especially the smooth idle and throttle response.
This HEI Distributor along with the wires and E3 spark plugs allows my 89 Jeep YJ with an AMC 360 to fire up immediately every time. It starts like a new vehicle. Very easy to install, even when swapping my old distributor driven gear onto the new HEI unit (to avoid having to swap the cam mounted drive gear). Hooked up 12 volts, installed the plug wires (and new plugs), started right up and adjusted the timing. VERY EASY!!!
This was the perfect setup for our old cj-5 golden eagle. Installed in a little over 2 hours with refreshments and was an immediate improvement over the old Smithsonian distributor. Would recommend this to any one with a distributor your a little unsure is getting the job done.
Anyone wanting more power and reliability for a few $$ and a short install time needs this conversion. The hardest part was giving the underhood wiring a "diet". Very easy install...best value out there!
Is this distributor new or re-man?

Hello, I have a 73 cj5 with a 304 v8, I want to order the HEI Billet Distributor and I need the part number for the correct plug wires and the power lead. Do I need special plugs as well? Thanks ,Brian
Asked by Brian from wyoming on
Hi Brian The HEI Billet Distributor will work great, the power lead is PWP30809 and the wires would be UIWHEI9076R. I found Auto Light plugs have always worked better on the AMC engines and will allow you to gap them 50-55 thousandths. Thanks
