HIGH PERFORMANCE CHEVY SUPER 65K VOLT HEI DISTRIBUTOR 6500-R
CHEVY V-8 SBC AND BBC 65000 VOLT HEI DISTRIBUTOR.
The only true 65K HEI on the market. This is the true original super 65K model with the Super style cap. We have tested our 6500-R unit up to 7000 rpm on an sbc 350 engine that had 13:1 compression ratio, and made 565 hp on the dyno. 7000 rpm is most likely not the max amount, but it was the max amount we wanted to run the engine we tested.
Be sure you have sufficient firewall clearance. This unit is one full inch wider in diameter, and approximately one and a half inches taller compared to a point style distributor. If your car came equipped with an HEI unit then you will not have a problem at all. The firewall tunnel on many GM vehicles allowed space for the HEI unit, but be sure before purchasing. For those that find this unit may not work, we have the oem style HEI unit that has a smaller coil cover, rather than the large flat Super cover this unit has. The oem cover is tapered down on the top sides, and offers much more clearance compared to this model. If the oem HEI unit is still not small enough, than you may need the small base ready to run HEI unit. It has a base and cap the size of an original point distributor, but requires an external coil. These are called, "Ready to Run or Small Base HEI Distributors" See our other listings for a full variety of distributors.
The quality of this unit far exceeds any of the others on the market in our opinion. We have much less tolerance for failure than many other sellers seem to have. Other sellers claim to have the best and we know that to not to be true in many cases. We have now lowered our prices for the first time to be in line with the other low cost units on the market, but we will continue still offering the same high quality unit. It seems that many people do in fact purchase the lowest costing unit they can find, assuming they are all of the same quality. Those seeking the lowest cost unit have been very much in error thinking that all the distributors on the market are of the same quality. Our objective is to keep our customer at our door regardless of the amount of profit we are making. So here it is, the best hei unit made for the new low price listed above, not to mention we certainly have the best warranty, and customer service of any seller on the web, in our opinion. Now would also be a good time to shop our other listings for many other items at record low prices.

WE'VE BEEN ASKED MANY TIMES IF THIS IS EVERYTHING NEEDED, AND THE ANSWER IS YES.
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, remove its cap.On GM HEI distributor, unplug the pickup to coil harness from the cap.Do not remove the plug wire at this time.Crank the engine slowly until the rotor blade aims a fix point on the engine or firewall.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.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, 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.Reinstall the hold-down clamp and thread the bolt just enough to exert a very slight pressure against the distributor.If the distributor was not firmly seated, manually rotate the engine until the distributor drop down into place.
8.With the distributor properly seated, tighten the hold-down bold 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 (on GM HEI distributors, it will also be necessary to transfer the coil and coil cover from the old cap to 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 resisters were often in the wire harness coming from the starter, and this must be eliminated. Test your power source to be sure your feeding the new HEI unit a full 12 volts. You will also need a spade terminal to tap your power source into the new unit. You can find such terminals at any hardware or auto supply. We have a full line of distributor accessories.

Read some of our past feedback on those that have purchased this unit, and you will be convinced of it's quality, and value.
THIS IS THE NEWEST VERSION ON THE MARKET. THIS UNIT HAS A PERFECTED MODULE SYSTEM VIRTUALLY ELIMINATING FAILURES, AS WELL AS THE NEW 65K COIL!! THIS COIL IS ESSENTIAL ON ANY MODIFIED ENGINE.
BRAND NEW IN THE BOX. FIRST LINE ITEM.
THIS HEI FITS MOST SMALL AND BIG BLOCK CHEVY ENGINES FROM 55 UP TO 86. BB & SB!!!
Will also fit later V-8 engines that have converted to carburetor.
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.
We have sold this same unit at our store for several years, and have many high performance engines in this area running this unit. The only difference is this is a much improved model. All parts used are brand new, first line quality. We know there are several manufacturers on the market, and we have been very selective in choosing the best company to make our distributors.
We are in the performance business.
Our company president, Skip W. strongly recommends the universal 90 degree wires, as they will fit perfect. Those that were running a point system often used a 7mm wire, and this is not sufficient to carry the high voltage produced by the HEI unit. See our other listings for many needed accessories.
This distributor will fit all Chevy V-8 carburated engines up to 1986 . It will fit earlier model engines equipped with point style distributors. Fire wall clearance may be an issue on some early model cars, but we have found many to fit with good clearance.
Fully CNC Machined - Polished Housing
Adjustable vacuum advance canister to improve economy while cruising
Premium caps with brass terminals, and a low-saturation Ignition module
It also offers true spark alignment for instantaneous response at high RPM

We offer a LIFETIME warranty on this distributor.
This is the perfect upgrade for your classic Chevy, or just part of a tune-up. It would not be practical to re-install the original HEI back into your engine if you are overhauling it.
Here are a few problems you are most likely to encounter, when using an old distributor.
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. This 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.
Below is a picture to give you an idea of what the distributor will look like in the engine.
I consider this the absolute best mod you can do to your engine.
WE HAVE ACCESSORY ITEMS AVAILABLE FOR THIS DISTRIBUTOR
This distributor also has the performance curve setup. 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 any seller, and we provide the newest models available.
