Title: Ignition distributor for internal combustion engines

Abstract

An ignition distributor is described for an internal combustion engine which has ignition plugs and a crankshaft comprising: stationary electrodes, each connected to one of the ignition plugs respectively; and a rotary electrode coupled to the crank shaft of the internal combustion engine to rotate interlocked therewith, and located opposing each of the stationary electrodes so that a minute gap is formed between the rotary electrode and each of the stationary electrodes successively, upon rotation of the rotary electrode, wherein at least one of: (a) each of the plurality of stationary electrodes, and (b) the rotary electrode comprises a main body composed of zinc oxide and ferrite and a surface layer mainly composed of ferrite integrally formed on the surface of the main body.
