Has anyone ever converted a non-overdrive 1940 180 to overdrive? I don't have any immediate plans to do this to my car but just curious what is involved and how much $$$$ it would cost.

Just remember if you do buy it I assume you would replace the spark plugs and wires the diagram in the shop manual is wrong a 1940 160/180 distributor rotates COUNTER-CLOCKWISE not clockwise.

Oh man we were almost ready to pull our hair out on this one! I kept thinking I followed the factory diagram why did the car not start? Then when my mechanic friend came over the first question he had was how does the distributor rotate then he pulled of the cap and had me crank it over he said-Mike this distributor rotates counter-clockwise, I think that diagram is wrong. Then the search was on for which contact on the distributor was for cylinder #1. When he found it he had me crank the car over-fired rights up.

Well the problem has been solved. I had a mechanic friend of mine come over to look at the car and what we discovered was that the factory diagram of the wiring of the spark plug wires is TOTALLY WRONG. Since my distributor rotates counter clockwise. I have enclosed these photos to help anyone else out there who might have a similar problem. The first photo shows the location of the #1 cylinder on the distributor by having the wire removed. The second photo (and I do not know why it attached sideways) show how the wires are routed to the distributor.

You know over the last few years I have become more and more dependent on my GPS when driving a distance-I was wondering does anyone make a GPS for 6-volt cars?
