Attached are pics of the completely restored starter, generator and VR, and distributor. All bad and wear parts have been replaced along with all the questionable parts as well. All parts have been cleaned bead blasted and powder coated and they look awesome!!!!. All Parts have been bench tested and setup/adjusted for optimal performance.

Great Job Jason!!

Does look good. Is Jason still by himself and was the turn around long?

I just had a distributor for a 1953 Hudson Hornet done by Jason. Workmanship impeccable and of course it performed perfectly, delivery about 6 months.

Yes he is and yes it is.....sometimes quality is worth waiting for, but if you have an emergency there may be others that might be able to have a shorter might have a shorter turn around, but i doubt it. Im still waiting for my dash cluster to be finished and its over a year at this point from a different vendor.....not sure the quality sacrifice would be worth it, the list of stuff he did to my parts was pretty impressive, he had the vacuum advance rebuilt and re-coated to look new original, new armature, bearings, oil cups.....the list goes on and on

Very, very good. This should be part of any engine rebuild. People rebuild an engine down to the the half-thousandth on everything, but don't rebuild these items. They are as worn out as the engine is! (cue analogy of showering and putting your stanky underwear back on).

Pushbutton love your analogy made me laugh, I agree these are the basics of not breaking down or being stranded some where.........next are the brakes and a complete rewire.

The one thing that intimidates me that i have coming up as well is the column shift, it was real sloppy and pretty hard to find the gears. there is a piece of garden hose (i think) wedged between the column and the shift tube in the engine bay.....maybe to stop rattling or to not let the shifter fall out of gear???

The prewar linkage was apparently prone to many issues and if you go thru the service letters several suggestions and a couple of retrofit components are mentioned. Bushings at various rod ends in particular were a source of problems. Original rubber encased bushings on the shift rods were replaced with solid steel because of the rubber deteriorating and causing lock up issues. As to the garden hose, either noise or action is a possibility. The spring loaded rod going down the center of the shift tube that moves the tongue which selects a shift lever has rubber antivibration bushings in about 3 places. It is possible one or more of the bushings has deteriorated and the rod is vibrating or buzzing inside the shift tube. The garden hose could just be there to muffle the sound.
