Direct Replacement Distributor
If your 1979-1984 Mustang is due for a tune up, don't forget to pick up a new replacement distributor! This distributor features a cast iron gear and fits 1979-1982 carbureted Mustangs with a manual or automatic transmission, and 83-84 carbureted Mustangs with a manual transmission using a flat tappet cam. Over the years, the distributor in your 5.0 Fox Body can start to wear out, leaving you with a miss or rough idle. Don't let a malfunctioning distributor keep you from making maximum power! Pick up a brand new, direct replacement distributor today at LatemodelRestoration.com.
The cap provided on these distributors is a "universal" fit. For a Mustang, you will need to reuse your cap adapter (plastic part between distributor and cap) and use a cap and rotor kit like this Taylor setup.
