We are aware of the fact that installing our HEI electronic distributors in 383 thru 440 Chrysler engines requires grinding of the cast iron cylinder head for distributor clearance. This is due to the fact that HEI distributors are larger in diameter because of the reliability & performance capabilities built into these distributors. The spark plug gap alone is increased from .035 to .055 so they have to be larger. The 65000 volt coil (stock is only 18000 when new) is built right into the cap of this unit, making it a bit taller too.

These are a true marine performance distributor. If you are not willing to take a rotary file and a drill motor to make this distributor fit, better stick with your old 1970s points distributor, but you’ll be doing it with great sacrifice over ours!

Tips for Keeping Our Water Blue

Tips for Keeping Our Water Blue

Tips for Keeping Our Water Blue

At AAA Marine Wholesale we believe in boating responsibly and keeping the environment safe for anyone who comes to enjoy it. We adhere to the Boy Scout’s principal of, “Leave it better than you found it” and when it comes to the water there are many things we can all do together to keep the water clean, animals healthy and ensure future generations will be able to savor the open water’s beauty the same way we have. Here is a list of some handy tips to responsible boating:

  1. Regular Engine Maintenance

    1. Keeping your engine in tune will not only reduce your emissions but it could save you money too! Regularly check fuel and oil filter for leaks and replace when necessary. Engine parts designed with performance and efficiency in mind can increase the economy of your vessel while also reducing waste. 

  2. Manage Trash and Waste Water

    1. Never throw away trash on the water. Many animals will often confuse human trash for food and this can lead to the death of animals. Plan ahead when it comes to waste water. Some shore facilities will have pumping stations for waste water. Never dump waste water near shore or in an area without open water i.e. marina, harbor or bay. Hazardous materials like batteries, oil and oil products and antifreeze have designated collection facilities. 

  3. Watch your Greywater

    1. These days there are many green alternatives to soaps that should be used when doing dishes or taking showers that can minimize one’s impact on the environment.

  4. Use Green Bottom Paints

    1. Antifouling paints often contain many heavy metals which can be damaging on a marine ecosystem. There are alternatives which are considered safer but be sure to check the label before purchasing. Also using non-abrasive hull cleaning practices can keep the paint on your boat and out of the ecosystem.

  5. Stay Dry

    1. Whenever possible, save maintenance for the boatyard where they often have methods in place to minimize their impact. Dry storage is also a viable alternative for some which could save you money in the long run. 

AAA Marine Wholesale is committed to making the water safe and clean for the future. We hope you join us in this endeavor. We have many products which can increase the sustainability for your boat’s engine, check them out here. info@aaamarine.com
