Crane HEI Distributor

Years ago GM’s HEI distributor was a great idea. The all-in-one design meant no external coil or CD box, so wiring and installation was a piece of cake. The problem, however, was a stock HEI just couldn’t keep up with the needs of a performance engine. When either the compression or the rpm’s got too […]
