351 Cleveland Distributor Trigger Pickup/Module

Postby jeffxygt » Wed Mar 22, 2017 9:19 pm

Fitting a PS500 to a 351 Cleveland and wanting to keep the distributor and single coil configuration. I have an Accel 52 Series Billet distributor. Can I separate the distributor pickup wiring from the module, use the pickup as the trigger, and then wire the PS500 to the original Accel module as the ignitor or will I have to use another ignitor like a haltech or a bosch? Just wanted to keep the engine bay simple and tidy, Thanks!

Not familiar with the distributor internals, but if it is a normal 2-pin reluctor style pickup inside then yes it can be run straight to the ECU.

The ignitor though will be looking for the reluctor waveform, so no this will nto work. You will need either an ignitor or a CDI unit to run the coil.
