Pertronix Flame-Thrower Hi-Performance Distributor for Jaguar "XK" 6-cylinder Engine D171600

High Performance, Negative Ground with Mechanical Advance.
Estimated Quantity Available: 2
Pricing: $319.99


Replace your worn-out Lucas distributor with a brand new electronic unit. Pertronix Hi-Performance Flame-Thrower distributors use the Pertronix Ignitor II? micro-processor ignition. Ready for installation with only two wires to connect. They fit all pre-fuel injection six-cylinder Jaguars.

  • Tailored advance curve for optimal performance and drivability.
  • Variable dwell maintains peak energy throughout the entire RPM range, reducing misfires while improving engine performance.
  • Develops on average four-times more available energy between 3000 and 5000 RPM, and two-times more plug voltage.
  • Peak current level is reached just prior to spark for maximum energy without the heat build-up, increasing coil and module life.
  • Adjusts spark timing at higher RPM to compensate for the inherent electronic delay.
  • Senses start-up and develops more energy for quicker, easier starting.
  • Built in reverse polarity and over-current protection shuts down the system, preventing component damage.
  • Warranty: 30 months for electronics and limited one-year mechanical.

Note: When fitting this part to an XK-120, XK-140, MK VII or MK VIII, a later-style distributor hold-down clamp is required. Part number LU-423605.
