Powerspark Lucas 25D6 Distributor for Ford Zephyr & Zodiac
A custom made distributor designed to directly replace your original.
Ford used the Lucas 25D6 6 Cylinder distributor in Zephyr and Zodiac 6 cylinder engines but with a different drive gear on the bottom. It is this change to the drive gear that distinguishes the Ford version of the 25D6 from the unit used by Austin Healey’s, Jaguar XJs, Triumph TR6s and more.
This product suits 6 cylinder versions of the Ford Zephyr Mk1, Mk2, Mk3 and Zodiac Mk1, Mk2, Mk3.
We offer this distributor in points, electronic, electronic positive earth and High Energy variants.
When we developed our Lucas 25D6 distributor we wanted to improve on some of the known areas of weakness in the original 25D6.
We applied our knowledge of the 25D 4 Cylinder distributor and added an additional oil seal to the shaft, just like Lucas did when they upgraded the 25D 4 cylinder to the 45D.
This extra oil seal makes our distributor longer lasting than other alternatives that are out there.
Electronic variants of this distributor replace the original points with a Powerspark ignition module, which uses a simple magnetic trigger ring to sense ignition instead of traditional points.
Aesthetically this distributor is indistinguishable from the original items from the 1970s. It has a tamper proof vacuum advance unit with later push on vacuum connection.

Fitted on my Zephyr 6. Idles really well. Easy to start compared with the original distributor. Looking to get for my other classics as well. Will definitely recommend to others.
