I have this part left over and I can't find my before picture that has it.

Can anyone tell me where it goes? It is a felt like wick and I think it is to lube the distributor cam.

Back to the dizzy. I got the points conversion from Dwight Heinmuller. It is the silver set at the top right. Nicely machined. I also fitted Onan (Cummings) 312-0256 condensers. You can get them from RV dealers as they are used in Onan Generators and are very dependable, but pricy.

You are correct, but mine was made in '37. It is a very early and complete original car. The starter is drilled for the square box solenoid.

Got another one. Sent a picture of a starter on Ebay. Ended in God Bless.

Finished unit, less tag and solenoid.

Runs good.

Cleaned up the starter. Fresh paint, new brushes, turned the commutator and undercut the grooves. New polished stainless attachment screws.

This is an Owen-Dyneto starter. My car is a very early '38 so my guess is it is a carryover from '37 or it just got replaced somewhere in its life. Still looking for the starter solenoid. The square box one.

Riki,

If you have no interest in the manifolds, I might. Do you have any info?

Installation of the condenser/point plate is complicated by a spring that goes over the pins in the advance weights. Ended up using a piece of string thru the condenser mounting windows and pulled it back while installing the plate over the advance weight pings.
