distributor linkage

Post by blgitn » Sun Aug 11, 2019 4:16 pm

guys,

My cw/ccw dyslexia has me confused; do I need these for my clamp-on American Bosch distributor, or do I just make a longer spark rod?
Thanks in advance (ha!)

R/ Roger.

All clockwise rotation distributors require a bellcrank and of course counter clockwise do not. Hope this helps.

Those pieces are for the Bosch "front plate" - not associated with the "clamp-on" Bosch.

The clamp on style Bosch just uses a rod like the timer only different length and shape at the distributor end.
I know the voices aren't real but damn they have some good ideas! :shock:
