  • Ford Kent / PreCrossflow & Crossflow


The original performance distributor as fitted to most Ford / Lotus high performance engines and racing cars through the 1960’s. This distributor has been faithfully recreated while being subtly upgraded for improved performance and reliability. Due to the increased scarcity of good original units and the poor quality of alternatives available on the market, Crosthwaite and Gardiner have completely remanufactured the distributor and re-engineered it to the highest standards. All new die cast aluminum body, faithful to the original design, incorporating key improvements for strength around the clamp area and the provision for mounting an external condenser. Needle roller lower bearing, ball race upper bearing and lip seal improve shaft support and remove play and wear associated with original bushing design. The top shaft and cam has been carefully recreated and precision engineered to eliminate points bounce and ensure ignition timing accuracy at even the highest RPM’s. Manufactured as standard with 10 degree total distributor advance (20 degree total engine advance). High quality points mounted on a bespoke baseplate ensuring that the points are ideally positioned relative to the cam. Externally mounted high quality, large capacity condenser ensures improved condenser reliability as a result of being mounted in cool air and using the distributor body as a heatsink. Manufactured and assembled by Crosthwaite and Gardiner, each distributor is calibrated on a distributor tester to optimum advance curve. We have used and tested these on numerous engines with great success and highly recommend them as a reliable and better performing alternative to the various electronic units currently on the market. Side entry cap included, top entry cap is available.

We also supply the correct service parts for this distributor.
