CHEVY V-8 SBC AND BBC 65000 VOLT HEI DISTRIBUTOR FOR GEN 1 CHEVY ENGINES.
PART NUMBER 6500-CL
This is the true original super 65K model. We have tested our HEI distributor up to 7000 rpm on an SBC 350 engine with 13:1 compression ratio, and made 535 hp on the dyno.
Be sure you have sufficient firewall clearance before purchasing. This unit is one full inch wider in diameter, and approximately one and a half inches taller compared to a point style distributor. If your car came equipped with an HEI unit, then you should not have a problem. The firewall tunnel on many GM vehicles with point style distributors will allow space for the full size HEI unit with the Super cap, but there are some that do not have enough clearance.
It is usually the large flat coil cover on the Super cap that causes a fit issue. If you think this unit may not work, we have the OEM style HEI unit with a smaller coil cover, rather than the large flat coil covers on units referred to as"Super Caps." Our 6500 distributors all have the large flat Super Cap coil cover. Our 6501 HEI distributors all have the original equipment style coil cover. The letter at the end of the part numbers designates the color of the cap. The OE style coil cover on our 6501 models is tapered down on the top sides, and offers slightly more clearance than the Super Cap. Both units function exactly the same. The only difference is the appearance.
If you think the 6501 unit with the OE style cap is still not small enough, then you may need the small base ready to run HEI unit. It has a base and cap the size of an original point distributor, but requires an external coil. These are called "Ready to Run" or "Small Base HEI Distributors." The part number is 6701 for Chevy engines. See our other listings for a full variety of distributors.
This article is not specific to the unit advertised in this ad. This is a generic article on the main differences among the three styles of HEI distributors we offer.
The quality of this unit far exceeds any of the others on the market. We have much less tolerance for failure than many other sellers seem to have. Other sellers claim to have the best, and we know that to not to be true in many cases. We have now lowered our prices for the first time to be in line with the other low cost units on the market, but we will continue to offer the same high quality unit.
This is the best HEI unit made, for the new low price listed above, with the best warranty and customer service offered by any seller on the web. Now would also be a good time to shop our other listings for many other items at record low prices.
We have a full line of parts available for this distributor, including caps of various colors and styles, as well as coil cover, coil, module, rotor button, and distributor hold down. We also offer a Master Tune Up Kit. This kit is a very popular seller. It has all the spare parts you would ever need to be back up and running in minutes should a problem arise. Many people who buy our distributors purchase this kit. If you're looking for a single spare or replacement part for this distributor, we also have them listed.

THIS IS THE NEWEST VERSION ON THE MARKET. THIS COIL IS ESSENTIAL ON ANY MODIFIED ENGINE.
BRAND NEW IN THE BOX. FIRST LINE ITEM.
THIS HEI FITS MOST SMALL AND BIG BLOCK CHEVY ENGINES FROM 55 UP TO 86. BB & SB!!!
Will also fit later V-8 Gen 1 engines that have converted to carburetor.
Notice the precision machine work on the distributor body. Many others are not like this. We have been very selective on our choice, as there are many HEI's on the market.
We have sold this same unit for several years, and many high performance engines run this unit. This is a much improved model. All parts are brand new, first line quality. We know there are several manufacturers on the market, and we have been very selective in choosing the best company to make our distributors.
We strongly recommend a new set of plug wires to go with your new distributor. Those running a point system often used a 7mm wire, and this is not sufficient to carry the high voltage produced by the HEI unit. 8mm plug wire diameter or larger should be used with any HEI distributor. We offer exceptional deals on spark plug wires with a wide variety of colors and boot styles. See our other listings for our high quality, low priced plug wires.
Great part at very affordable price an quick shipping. Five star seller.
