What we really have here is a value-priced, high-performance item that offers all the great aftermarket benefits inside and also gives that great stock look.
The “Stock-Look” Flame-thrower aftermarket distributor features a new lightweight cast aluminum housing that’s been modeled after Delco and Motorcraft distributors for your GM and Ford applications. That’s right, these aren’t modified OEM parts, but ground-up designs from Pertronix based on original appearances for Ford Small Block and Chevrolet Big Block/Small Block engines.
“We didn’t just take factory pieces, modify them to our liking, box them back up, and ship them out,” says President Jim Hairston. “These are high-quality distributors that we’ve manufactured top to bottom.”
The Flame-Throwers also sport a hardened gear ground to exact tolerances for a precise mesh with the camshaft, an adjustable vacuum advance canister for improved tunability, and optimized phasing that insures maximum energy to the spark plug.
Best of all – in addition to the stock appearance, of course – is the maintenance free ignitor electronics built into the unit, which provides decades of trouble-free operation and negating the hassle of adjusting points and replacing capacitors. Each Flame-Thrower ships with a high-end cap and rotor that’s ready to run out of the box.
- Tailored advance curve for optimal performance and drivability
- Integrated electronic ignition available with Solid State Ignitor or Ignitor III with adjustable rev limiter
