Flame-Thrower Distributor for British Engine D176600Performance Distributors

These distributors are built using all new castings modeled after the 45D series distributor. Each distributor is then precision machined for an exact fit. Replace your faulty factory Lucas electronic or worn out 23D, 25D and 45D point distributor with a distributor that will deliver the performance you demand.
