Powerspark Lucas 45D6 Distributor Top Entry
The Powerspark 45D6 distributor is a direct replacement for your Lucas 22D6 or 45D6 distributor.
This high quality reproduction has been selling for over 15 years. The advance curve is specific to 6 cylinder vehicles.
We offer this distributor in Points, Electronic and High Energy versions as well as positive earth.
Points versions come with a brand new points set inside. Electronic variants come with the patented Powerspark Electronic Ignition module inside to make running and starting easier and smoother.
A non vacuum variant is also available, which is more suitable for race and track vehicles.
With racing cars, optimum performance of the engine at high revs is more important than fuel economy or running while cold and under very little load, which is why a non-vac distributor is used. Without the vacuum components and weights, a non-vac distributor is less complicated to maintain and easier to time. Only use a non-vac distributor if you are certain that is what you require.
Well known models that used the Lucas 45D6 include the Aston Martin DBS and Jaguar E Type + XJ.
