e-FIRE Electronic Distributor 3-bolt 1932-1941 Ford Flathead V8
NEW FROM STROMBERG for your flathead Ford. The e-FIRE distributor, with electronic ignition, traditional looks, easy installation and simple set-up.
- Reliable electronic ignition
- Available in 12v negative or 6v positive ground
- No points. No condenser. No black (or red) box
- Simple two-wire hook-up
- OE-style timing adjuster. Stock black cap
- Old-school performance tag with unique ID
- Triggers most multi-spark CD ignitions
Every e-FIRE distributor looks like it belongs on your traditional flathead motor, with a regular black cap and an old-school performance tag. It’s also as short as we could make it, which is important if you’re building a hot rod.
Every one has electronic ignition. No points, no condenser, no black (or red) box and very little maintenance. Just higher efficiency, economy and accurate spark timing.
It’s easy to install, with just two wires to a regular coil, and adjusts just like a stocker with the static timing screw on the side so you don’t have to unbolt it and turn the whole body. The advance rate (and max total advance) is tuned specifically to suit the flathead V8 motor and every e-FIRE distributor is machine tested and ready to run.
Must be used with a points style coil only. Stromberg recommends a 1.5 Ohm coil. DO NOT use a low-resistance (less than 1.5 Ohms) or HEI-style coil. 12V and 6V coils are available for purchase on our website.
NOTE: IF YOU ARE RUNNING A 1932-1941 DISTRIBUTOR ON A 1942-1948 V8 FLATHEAD, YOU MAY NEED A DISTRIBUTOR CAMSHAFT ADAPTER.
PLEASE NOTE: Must be used with a points style coil only. Stromberg recommends a 1.5 Ohm coil. DO NOT use a low-resistance (less than 1.5 Ohms) or HEI-style coil.
