Hot-Spark Electronic Ignition Conversion Kit for 8-Cylinder Prestolite Marine, Agricultural and Industrial Distributors

Replaces Points and Condenser - Never Adjust Points or Timing Again!

 

    The Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit replaces breaker points and condenser in the distributor to provide rock-solid reliability. With the Hot-Spark electronic ignition, dwell and timing are always spot-on accurate.

 

    No matter how strong your engine is, you won't get the most out of it without a good spark. The stock, points-based ignition system used technology that dates back a century - to the Kettering system, which was introduced in the 1910 Cadillac. Even though you can adjust breaker points for near-electronic ignition performance, they will burn and wear within a few thousand miles, long before the recommended replacement interval. With points, the timing will drift; power and fuel economy will suffer.

 

    The Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit delivers a strong spark every time and is maintenance-free. You'll notice quicker starts, more top end power and a little gas mileage boost. It's as easy to install as points and condenser!

 

Advantages of the Hot-Spark electronic ignition conversion kit:

 

3PRE6U2 - For 6-cylinder Prestolite Non-Vacuum-Advance Distributor with Screw-down Distributor Cap

3PRE8U1 - For 8-Cylinder Prestolite Non-Vacuum-Advance Distributor with Clip-down Distributor Cap

3PRE8U2 - For 8-Cylinder Prestolite Non-Vacuum-Advance Distributor with Screw-down Distributor Cap

 

3PRE6U2, 3PRE8U1 and 3PRE8U2 ignition kits must be used with the stock Prestolite distributor breaker points plate. Prestolite distributors must have the original breaker plate, complete with with points and condenser, in order for the 3PRE8U1/3PRE8U2 ignition conversion kit to fit.

Please note that SAE J1171 and UL 428D are NOT distributor part numbers,  but simply US Coast Guard standards that many completely different distributors meet. These numbers are of almost no use in determining which distributor you have or what ignition kit you need. Usually, the Prestolite distributor part number will be on the opposite side of the distributor body.

 

International Buyers – Please Note:

 

VERY IMPORTANT -- BEFORE ORDERING: Some distributors of vehicles, boats, etc. may differ, according to whether the stock distributor is still in place or a replacement distributor has been installed. Some otherwise similar or identical engines use different distributor brands and/or different distributor part numbers. We need your distributor's brand name, distributor part number and number of engine cylinders to ensure that the electronic ignition conversion kit is correct one for your particular distributor.

If your distributor part number, normally found on the side of the distributor body, is not among those listed on the relevant web page, chances are, the HotSpark ignition conversion kit won't fit your distributor.

It's imperative that we know your distributor's brand name, distributor part number and the number of cylinders of your engine. You may need to remove the distributor temporarily, so that you can read the distributor part number from the side of the distributor body. Usually, the side of your distributor will be covered with oil and dirt, so you'll need to clean it to find the distributor brand name and exact part number.

We can guarantee only that each of our ignition kits will fit a distributor with one of the distributor part numbers listed on its relevant web page. Otherwise, it likely won't fit. HotSpark ignition kits require a 12-volt, negative ground (earth) electrical system.

If you order the wrong electronic ignition conversion kit for your distributor, you'll need to return it to us, via US Postal Service mail within 45 days from date of purchase. If the ignition kit is in perfect, unused condition, we can accept it as a retuned item, within 45 days of purchase, and provide a refund to your PayPal account, less a 20% restocking fee and any international shipping fees, etc., but only if the ignition kit is in pristine, unused condition. Buyer is responsible for shipping and other costs to return the product for credit or exchange.
