I found a real nice repro at Hershey in 2019 that was cast bronze (I think the originals were potmetal) for my 31 that looks pretty similar. Was made/sold by Henry Yeska. I'll look for his contact information and will repost. I recall looking everywhere for one but his was the first and only I've ever seen.

Excellent, and thanks very much. I don't think the cam gear has been altered. Is there any risk of pulling the cam gear out as I draw up the distributor drive shaft or is the gear captive?

yes it looked like a 90 degree adjustment might be the fix. it's just a square drive system?

8th Series Distributor drive

Hi guys -- Trying to get my 31 running. Carb Doctor rebuilt the DL Model 51, Jeff got the distributor curve situated, had the generator and voltage regulator rebuilt. Tried to start; nothing. pulled the distributor and saw the rotor is about an inch off where the distributor terminal is for Spark No. 1, that leads me to conclude the driveshaft is off. Is the adjustment such that I lift the shaft, reposition until I get the rotor to line up with No. 1 terminal? I take it shaft is geared where it mates to the camshaft gear?

With Jason, be ready to be without your relay for 6 months, at least.

I've had good luck with Mike Leveillee of KM Lifestyle. Very pleasant, prompt and knowledgeable.

Here is a picture of the rotted out version of what I decided to replace. Note the bottom edge that is completely rusted out, but distribution holes still present. On the extreme right is the slot that receives the cooled water for ongoing distribution through the holes. Take a look at your block and see if you see some port or galley that logically mates to the pump outflow that would similarly receive the cooled water. It needs to be there or the water jacket will not function as designed.

Check out this thread, which has an image of what a decent looking water jacket looks like for a 8 cylinder version.

PS: I think there should be a slot located on the front end of the cover that is just wide enough to collect the cooled water coming of the water pump -- at that is how mine is configured

You are in good company - I am awaiting a stainless steel water jacket for a Standard 8 from Kanters. I would suspect that the original steel insert (i.e., which the brass plate replaced) was so rotted out that when the prior owner decided to replace it with the brass plate there were no holes or otherwise a frame of reference that they should be there. I'd have to believe that there should be holes directed to each cylinder. It is my understanding that the water jacket receives cooled water from the radiator via the pump and equitably distributes it so hotspots are minimized. Mine still had the holes, but had enough rot that I decided to replace it as its effectiveness would've been greatly reduced.

The starter grounds where the starter and block make contact; clean both surfaces real good and see if it isn't that.
