In this Throwback Thursday, we’re taking a small jump back to December 2017. That’s when we jumped head first into showing you what goes into diagnosing your HEI distributor with help from Performance Distributors when we published, HEI Distributor Troubleshooting With Performance Distributors.
The HEI distributor is a great ignition. Do you want proof? Haw many non-Chevrolet cars are running this wonder of combustion initiation? But, every once in a while, an enthusiast encounters a hiccup in performance and needs to troublshoot the issue.
