Yes, this is the same distributor after complete restoration. The rest of the ignition sho
What Did You Learn This Month?
Night School wouldn't be complete without a quiz! Don't worry about your test-taking skills or grades, this is an open-magazine, true or false test. Answers can be found in the Night School text, photos, or captions. Have a good month!
True or False Questions:
* Ping is the sound of pistons rattling against the cylinder walls, caused by low-octane fuel or too much spark timing advance.
* All conventional distributors have both a vacuum and centrifugal advance.
* Ported vacuum and manifold vacuum are always equal.
* Breaker point dwell is the same thing as cam angle.
* Dual-point systems increase dwell angle without premature point wear.
* A ballast resistor helps reduce the coil temperature.
* If the distributor's cam lobes have too much wear, an electronic conversion may be the best fix.
* A defective condenser will cause hard starting, reduce spark output and cause premature points failure.
* One useful troubleshooting tool is a volt-ohmmeter.
* A cheap roll pin from the hardware store is good enough for a distributor drive gear.
