Distributor for EFI Applications
Distributors don't last forever. Late Model Restoration is proud to offer this brand new 1986-1993 Mustang 5.8 replacement distributor for EFI cars! This distributor comes completely pre-assembled with the cap, rotor and steel gear. If you're experiencing ignition cutout or loss of power, it's possible that you need to replace your distributor! The distributor plays a big part in keeping your car running smoothly & efficiently.
This distributor includes a steel gear that fits roller camshaft only. This is a brand new distributor that has not been re-manufactured.
You may ask, "what does a distributor do?" or, "How do I know when to replace it?" Well, to sum it all up - the distributor generates power that is distributed to the spark plugs. That then allows the spark plugs to spark & ignite the air/fuel mixture. Telltale signs of a bad distributor are generally obvious. Most occur upon start-up or lack thereof. As soon as you crank your Mustang, if there is a high-pitched shriek, the distributor cap and rotor need to be cleaned/replaced or the entire distributor needs to be replaced if that doesn't fix your problem. Difficulty starting? Another telltale sign. Lastly, shaking! If your car is shaking while it is started - generally most often during idle - you may need a new distributor.
