Distributor, HEI Electronic, Street/Strip, Davis Unified Ignition, 1966-91 AMC, Jeep V8 (5 Colors, See Applications)
If you are looking for the best, trouble-free distributor for your AMC or Jeep V-8, look no further than the Davis Unified Ignition HEI Street/Strip distributor. The best costs more but the David Unified Ignition is proof you get what you pay for. Major benefits include a simple one-piece design, easy installation and performance enhancements over a stock ignition system. The all-in-one Davis Unified Ignition replaces the weak three-component system that came standard on the AMC / Jeep engines and utilizes only one 12 volt hot wire for hookup.
The David Unified Ignition AMC/Jeep V-8 HEI distributor is equipped with an internal 50,000-volt coil, which will fire a spark plug gap as large as .055″! Our high dwell Dyna-Module, located inside the distributor, increases spark duration for improvements in throttle response and low-end power. The David Unified Ignition centrifugal advance system is a true Performance Distributors specialty. We use a high-performance weight and spring assembly engineered for super smooth operation. The mechanical advance is then tuned using a Sun distributor machine to ensure a precise timing curve that will provide maximum power throughout the RPM range while eliminating engine-damaging detonation. An adjustment free vacuum advance canister is selected to work with the centrifugal advance for better drivability and increased fuel mileage. Ballast resistors are not required for the Davis Unified Ignition as this system works best with full alternator voltage.
If your AMC / Jeep V-8 engine is powering your Jeep through the mudholes or pushing your Javelin down the 1/4 mile, the Davis Unified Ignition will be the most powerful and reliable ignition system you can get to make your engine run like never before! This unit is a real work of craftsmanship and although it is uniquely designed, replacement parts are easy to find. GM High Energy Ignition (H.E.I.) parts such as a coil, module, cap or rotor will fit right on the Davis Unified Ignition. These parts can be found at any local auto parts store. The Street/Strip version is designed for a maximum of 7000 rpm’s and works great for off-road vehicles, daily drivers and drag cars.
Please note that Davis Unified Ignition AMC/Jeep V-8 distributors may not be ready for immediate shipping.

During our busy season (March-September), build times can take slightly longer.
