Questions: On my distributor, the bot is tight but I am still able to turn the distubator. Is there a fix or do I have to buy one of these?
Question By: Robert on Apr 9 2019 10:56 PM
There are 2 bolts. One to hold the distributor to the block and another to hold housing to bracket to allow adjustment. Make sure both are tight.

Questions: Just received my new distributor for a 134f. I noticed that the original has an oil drip cap for oiling the bearing. The new one has a round dowel with a c clip on it. Can I assume that the new bearing is sealed? If so what is the purpose of that dowel? And, can I paint the distributor body?
Question By: Eric Eggertsen on Feb 28 2019 3:48 PM
They do it for looks pretty sure. The bearing is sealed in there.

Questions: This distributor fits my '51 Jeepster F-134. I plan to keep it 6-volt and this distributor is appropriate. I wanted to upgrade to the Solid State version but it is listed as 12-volt only. So, will this standard 6-volt version accept (easily) an after-market Solid State upgrade? If so do you offer that? thanks.
Question By: Richard McFarland on Dec 10 2017 4:23 AM
The only way to change to a solid state distributor is by changing the voltage of the vehicle to 12 volts. If the vehicle is staying at 6 volts, than this is correct distributor for your application.
