New to me 1944 H. The distributor is vertical not horizontal like my cubs. Was this an up date or is it common on H tractors. :tractor:

Probably a Delco aftermarket unit. The tractor originally had a magneto.

Allis Chalmers use the same Delco vertical style distributor in their tractors some time in the mid 1940's. Also mounted on Allis tractors to replace the magneto.

I don't know if the IH gears and the Allis gears for the vertical distributor are a match. Probably is my guess. I do know that the IH and Allis magnetos were a direct interchange due to their lag angle/advance was very close.

If you are looking for Delco parts for your vertical style distributor, search using Allis Chalmers.
I have an excuse. CRS.

When I was young, our 47 H had the vertical Delco dist. Seems more popular in some areas than others, I was at a show in N.E. Indiana a couple years ago and counted 9 of them on letter series Farmalls. It wasn't a IH show, either, probably about 30 red tractors there.
