FORD 289 302 HEI DISTRIBUTOR & ACCEL 4000 SERIES SUPERSTOCK 115º YELLOW ASSEMBLED IGNITION WIRES 8MM RFI SUPPRESSION.
Pictured above is what you will receive, the complete HEI Super 50K distributor and the Accel wire set. This set of has two coil wires included for those with coils that are further away from the dist.
To simplify shipping we have removed the wires from there original carton and placed them in with the distributor. The dist. box had ample room for the wires, but not with the original box. This allows us to keep the cost on shipping low. For those that require the original box, see our other listings for the wires and dist. sold individually.
No one offers a combo kit with the high end wires as we have. The wires alone sell for $33.95 at major performance retailers.
Pictured above is the 115º boot that attaches to the spark plug. The black boots are to connect to the distributor. These wires ARE ALREADY ASSEMBLED. Factory sealed, brand new, first line product. This auction is for the wires and 50K HEI distributor pictured above. The wires alone sell for $33.95 at major performance retailers.
We consider these wires a very high end quality for street or strip use. Below is an excerpt from our Accel add about the wires that come with the distributor.
We normally do not recommend pre-cut wires, but these were offered to us on our 60% off plan, so we gave them consideration. Before purchasing the complete lot we only purchased one set to test them for proper fitment. We found the fit to be exceptional, and purchased all that were available. Most pre-cut wires are usually to long, or at least a few of the wires in the set are, and in some cases there will be some that are too short. This was not the case with these. They have a near factory like fit. Scroll down to see the wires displayed on a Ford 302 engine. This type of wire is not considered a high end wire, but is certainly a very high quality wire sutible for those on a budget. 8mm is more than enough for any electronic ignition system on the market. Do bear in mind that these wires sell for more than double this price at all major retailers. Do an online search on this part number, Accel 4054 and you will clearly see this is the best value on wires you will ever find. In the pictures below we show the wires on each side of the engine, and one picture shows the front side of the engine where the wires attach to the distributor, and you can see that they are not abnormally long nor are any of them too short, but just right. I personally like cutting my own wires, but if I was sure they would fit this good, then I would certainly go with a set such as these. As with all of our 60% off items, once they are gone, we will never be able to obtain them again at this price. Do a search on our site for more of the 60% off items. Just type in 60% off and all of them will come up. Some of the items are often discounted below this level. We also have excellent shipping discounts for multiple item purchasing.

HIGH PERFORMANCE FORD 302, 5.0, 289 COMPLETE HEI DISTRIBUTOR, WITH CAP AND COIL
THIS IS A MUST FOR THOSE WISHING TO UPGRADE THE IGNITION SYSTEM FROM POINTS, OR THE POORLY DESIGNED ELECTRONIC IGNITION THAT FORD CAME OUT WITH AROUND 1974. THIS IS A ONE WIRE DISTRIBUTOR. A TACH PORT CAN ALSO BE USED. CALL 423-722-5152 FOR TECH. INFO.
FOR THOSE NOT FAMILIAR WITH USING THE GM STYLE HEI DISTRIBUTOR IN A FORD ENGINE. IT'S A VERY SIMPLE HOOKUP. THERE ARE TWO MALE SPADE TERMINALS IN THE CAP. ONE IS MARKED B AND THE OTHER IS MARKED T THE B TERMINAL IS TO GO TO A POWERED SOURCE THAT IS ACTIVE WHEN THE KEY IS IN THE ON POSITION, AND MUST ALSO SUPPLY POWER WHEN IN THE CRANKING POSITION. THE T TERMINAL IS FOR A TACH, IT'S THAT SIMPLE. ALL AUTO SUPPLY AND HARDWARE STORES HAVE SPADE TERMINAL KITS. THIS DIST. ONLY REQUIRES ONE WIRE TO BE UP AND RUNNING. USE AT LEAST A 10 GAUGE WIRE TO THE DIST. IF YOU HAVE AN OLD POINT STYLE FORD, DO NOT USE ANY OF THE OLD WIRING, AS THEY ARE TO SMALL, AND DELETE THE BALLAST RESISTOR FOR SURE.
THIS AUCTION IS FOR THE COMPLETE HEI DISTRIBUTOR, CAP, ROTOR, DIST. BODY, GEAR, COIL, AND SHAFT. EVERYTHING YOU NEED.
Notice the precision machine work the distributor body has. Many others are not like this. We have been very selective on our choice, as there are many HEI's on the market.

This is the perfect upgrade for your vehicle, or just part of a tune-up. Here are a few problems you are most likely to encounter, when using an old distributor. GIVE US A CALL FOR TECH SUPPORT AT 423-722-5152
excessive end shaft play
weak coil, worn or cracked cap, and button
weakened advance springs
if going from points to HEI this alone is a huge upgrade
All of the above can greatly affect the performance of your engine.
These are just a few of the things that most old distributors have going on with them. For the low cost of a complete brand new one, it just makes little sense to used the original distributor. When we rebuild any early model Chevy engine, we insist the customer purchase a new distributor. You will notice a performance difference in your engine if you have any of the above issues with your old distributor. All of the old HEI's we see have excess end play in the shaft. I'm sure the coils on them are not at full voltage. The Super Coil is much more than the oem model. All car makers have dramatically improved the ignition systems on cars and trucks. This is an indication of how important good ignition is to an engine.
This distributor also has the performance curve setup. This can clearly be seen in the picture below. Do not be mislead into thinking other HEI's on the market are superior to this. If anything they are most likely the older version. We have sold more HEI's than most others around, and we do our best to provide the newest models available.
This is the last distributor and wire set you will ever have to buy!
Lifetime Warranty on the distributor and wires is valid regardless of street or strip use.

1.Unpack the distributor carefully and inspect it for possible shipping damage. Inspect again after removing the cap.
2.If the distributor to be replaced has not already been removed from the engine, mark the #1 plug wire terminal on the distributor and remove its cap. (On GM HEI distributor, unplug the pickup to coil harness from the cap.) Do not remove the plug wires at this time. Crank or manually rotate the engine until the rotor blade aims at the #1 plug wire terminal. Note this point for future reference.
3.Find the connector in the wiring from the distributor to the ignition switch, and unplug it.
4.Note the exact position of the vacuum advance canister. Put a reference mark on the engine or firewall so that the new distributor may be easily installed in the same position.
5.Loosen and remove the distributor hold-down bolt and clamp. Lift the old distributor out, noting the position of the rotor in relation to a fixed point as it is removed. If the engine had been running within the past few minutes, the distributor housing may be hot and coated with hot engine oil. Wrap a shop towel around the distributor to avoid burning your hands and dripping oil.
6.Lower the new distributor into position. The rotor should be aimed at the same fixed point as was the rotor of the old distributor as it is inserted, and the vacuum canister aligned with the reference mark. After the new distributor has been lowered into place, you may find that it hasn’t seated firmly against the support boss. This indicates that the lower end of the distributor shaft is not properly aligned with the oil pump drive rod. Do not attempt to force the distributor into position.
7.Hold a very slight downward pressure against the distributor. If the distributor was not fully seated, manually rotate the engine until the distributor drops down into place.
8.With the distributor properly seated, tighten the hold-down bolt just enough so that the distributor is held in place but can still be rotated with a little effort. Again, make sure that the vacuum canister is aligned with the reference mark.
9.Remove the plug wires one at a time from the old cap and install them in the corresponding positions of the new one. After all wires have been transferred, verify that the wire in the terminal post that is aligned with the rotor leads to number one cylinder. If you are unsure of cylinder number position or firing order, this information can be found in the service manual that covers your particular engine. Put on the distributor cap.
10.Reconnect the wiring leading from the distributor to the ignition switch. On GM HEI distributors, plug the pickup lead connector into the new distributor cap.
11.Connect timing light. Start the engine and allow it to warm up sufficiently to idle smoothly. It may be necessary to rotate the distributor (either clockwise or counter-clockwise) before a smooth idle can be achieved. If the engine will not idle smoothly, the firing order may be incorrect, or the rotor may not have been properly aligned during installation. Consult a service manual for corrective procedure.
12.Consult the appropriate service manual to determine the factory-recommended initial timing and idle speed. Set initial spark timing with the vacuum advance line disconnected and plugged. Advancing timing two to four degrees from the factory setting will usually provide improved performance and fuel economy. However, timing advance beyond factory specification may result in detonation, which can cause engine damage. Listen carefully. If you hear the engine knocking or pinging, retard initial timing as required to eliminate it.
13. If you are converting from points to HEI, be sure that the your new unit is supplied with a full 12 volt power source. All point systems had a ballast resister that reduced voltage to around 6-8 volts. These resistors were usually in the wire harness coming from the ignition switch, and this must be eliminated. Test your power source to be sure your feeding the new HEI unit a full 12 volts with the engine running. You will also need a spade terminal to tap your power source into the new unit. You can find such terminals at any auto supply. See our other listings for many HEI accessories.
