Distributer help please!

Sat Apr 10, 2004 8:05 pm

I took apart my distributer apart and was looking for the points....got to some gears and such and now I don't remember how to reassemble it....Can someone give me some help on how to assemble it and "time" it Correctly? I feel like a Jack?ss. I think it is an "F-Cub" that is what the tag says anyhow, I pretty sure it is a 1953.

Try going to Rusi's site here:http://www.cleancomputes.com/Cub/index.html

Then try Binder books here: http://www.binderbooks.com

The info you give is vague.

Sounds to me you have a magneto.

Maybe this will help. http://www.farmallcub.com/HLChauvin.htm
