Restored Cast-Iron SWB Distributors

Wow. Every once in a while you run across somebody who REALLY knows original details. Ed Fall, who runs a business called Vintage Werks in Sandy, Utah, where the phone number is (801) 944-9777 (I know I'll be asked so I'm getting it out there up front) and the web site is www.vintagewerks.com, is just such a guy.

After a long conversation about the correct Bosch date codes and the differences among early cast iron distributors and curves, I had him do a pair of 001's and an 006 that I had on the shelf. One of the 001s was perfect and will be used for concours, the other had a scratch in the badge and will be the "driver." The one with the red paint on the badge was a spare for parts, but it is in working condition so I had him do it also (I'll paint the badge black when I have time).

Anyway, enough chin music, here are the pictures. I think he did a great job, these are like new, and he enclosed a computer-generated chart of the actual advance compared to the factory specs. Which is the way I would do it if I had a distributor machine, that's about the highest compliment I can pay. Can't wait to get these in the car.

The dark spots are where oil leaked out during shipping, no big deal.













Ed is a pleasure to deal with and a geniunely nice guy.

I have an 002 yellow tag, what colour should the arms that grab the cap
be. Mine are black currently but I can't quite tell from your pictures what
yours are, some of them look yellow cad and some look grey.

Andy, they are all black oxide, even on an 002.
