Replacement Marine (Marine Approved SAE J1171) Complete Distributor for the Chevy 350 (5.7) & 454  Standard Marine Left Hand Rotation (Most all Ski boats with Chevy Engines are Left Hand Rotation. If you are not sure about your engines rotation, please call.

Ski Boats with 70's, 80's, 90's  PCM, Indmar , Mercursier Chevy engines with Prestolite, or Mallory distributors all have mechanical advance (points or elect. ign) and the small springs that control the advance mechanism eventually wear out, break, or simply rust and break. These springs are no longer available, replacing with "similar" springs may result in too much advance or too little advance. There are other manufacturers making replacement distributors but we have found this one to be the best value for the money.

If your engine is suddenly backfiring and won't accelerate you will need to place a timing light on the engine and see if the timing mark moves (advances) as the rpm increases, if it stays in place and does not advance with increased RPM your distributor is NOT advancing, further investigation will most likely reveal broken advance springs below the points base plate. Given the hours that most of the these engines now have on them the bearings are also going to be worn so we recommend simply replacing the whole distributor.

Order Coil separately, NO Ballast resistor needed or used, if replacing an older ignition with ballast resistor you will need to by-pass the resistor.
