Default Re: IHC Vehicle Distributor Identification

Your photos depict a Prestolite electronic distributor.
The standard distributor for the '79 & '80 model years with IHC gas engines.
It has the electronic ignition module inside the unit.
It also has a mechanical/centrifugal advance unit and a vacuum advance unit that is adjustable.
Always utilize the black plastic dust cover, as installed in your first photo, as that is necessary for the distributor cap to fit properly.
