Why Maxx Power brand?
We have developed these units using OE equivalent castings, rotors, centirifugal weight machanisums and bushing for drop-in performance out of the box. The #11769 is dead-on to OE with the correct black cap, copper terminals and HRC20 gear.
The #11770 is a high performance unit with a polished aluminum machined housing, 50,000 volt coil, performance rotor and cap with aluminum terminals and 6,500rpm performance ignition module.
These units will breath new life into your engine with better fuel economy, quicker starts, better idle and more horsepower over existing points type or worn OE units.

Can I use these with a Roller Cam?
You will have to check with the cam manufacturer and determine if a HRC 20-HRC25 hardened gear is compatible with the cam drive gear. If not, you can purchase replacement gears very readily.
