Pottstown, Pennsylvania: Eastwood has been the trusted source of automotive restoration tools and supplies for more than 30 years. It has always been the place to go whenever the home hobbyist needed to fix a body panel or treat a rusty frame.
Adding to that product lineup is the new MaxxPower brand of engine accessories. Because Eastwood's customers expect the best, MaxxPower provides just that, better performance at the best price.
First, there is the "One-Wire" alternator. Created to fit 1965-86 GM vehicles, this alternator features hi-teautomotive restoration toolsmp electronics and windings designed to assure long life and put out a true 14.5 volts and 105 amps. And the majority of that output is at low rpms where it is needed for electrical pumps, fans, and stereo equipment. Heavy-duty bearings provide vibration-free running to eliminate "throwing belts" at high rpms. Dual internal fans send cool air through the unit for longer life. With only one wire to hook up, this unit simplifies the engine bay for a clean look, and the unit's distinctive casing can be easily painted or powder coated to make it look even more unique.
Next are the MaxxPower distributors. A precision machined aluminum body and steel shaft reduce vibrations and keep accurate timing to 6,500 rpm. High volt di-electric caps and rotors decrease the chances of "cross fire." An OE HEI equivalent model and a high-performance version, able to supply up to 50,000 volts, are available for 1955-80 Chevrolet V8 engines.
And how can you forget the starter? High-torque 1.7kw starters are available for both Chevrolet and Ford applications. Included with both applications, high-temp solenoids and windings, high-torque permanent magnets, and extended run-life carbon brushes combine to create among the finest starters on the market. Compatible with engines up to 12.5:1 compression, these MaxxPower units even feature a best-in-class price.
Made from 100% new components, the MaxxPower line has been designed with the modern engine builder in mind. Whether the need is to start it, ignite it, or charge it, MaxxPower provides the answer. And Eastwood is there to back it.
