Question distributor

hello I just picked up a msd distributor from ebay part number 8560. it is a marine distributor from what I understand marine distributors are made better that a stock car distributor ???? my real question is that it has no vacuum advance and im looking to run it in my bbc 496 that im currently having built. the motor should make between 600 and 700 hp/tq the car will not be driven everyday how ever I consider it to be a street car. Can I use the distributor in my car??????????????????????????????????

Re: distributor

Should be OK, but you will lose a little mileage with no vacuum, and maybe some daily driveability. Otherwise its a great distributor. The cap is bolted to the distributor, so you may have a tough time getting that on and off too since its so close to the firewall.

Im running the 85551 with just mechanical advance on my 496, so its basically the same as yours but less ruggedized, and its just fine.
