MSD Pro Billet Dist 8350
#1
I'm getting ready to purchase an MSD Distributor Ready to Run Pro-Billet P/N 8350 for my 351C to replace my old Mallory Unilite. Would like to know if there is enough clearance under the hood of my Mach 1 for this dissy with wires installed. Don't really want to modify my hood. Height from base of Dissy dissy is 8.9375. any one out there have a similar install ? would appreciate any feedback to help on this problem.   

Thanks

It will fit, but a factory air cleaner will not. Here is mine with the msd ready to run dizzy.

Hi Canted 393,
Thanks for your quick feedback. I've been looking at 13 inch air cleaner from NPD. Looking at yours is that a 13 inch diameter ?
Wish I could mount my coil like yours (Blaster 2) but I've still got A/c in the way....have to stick with horizontal mount on other side.

Thanks again,

I ran the msd 8577 pro billet with my stock air cleaner and it fit. But I did have a 1 inch spacer under the carb if I remember correctly.

PO put MSD on and aftermarket air cleaner with a spacer ring around the top of the carb. and it still does not clear. It had Edelbrock Performer 2-V to 4-V set up. I need to find a smaller dia. air cleaner and stock does not fit either.

Thanks for the feedback. I can't run a stock air cleaner. I have throttle body fuel injection and it won't fit. There is also a fractional difference in the height of your  8577and the 8350. My plan is to run a 13 inch air cleaner. Thanks again for you feedback.

I have a FiTech throttle body FI and a 14 inch air cleaner on it now. The MSD 8350 with wires installed will interfere so a 13 inch air cleaner from NPD will fix it. I HOPE  Thank you for your feedback and good luck with yours.

Would 10" be too small for the 351c?
