The limit bushing on the replacement dizzy I bought was missing and someone modded it by welding a bead on one end of the oval.Thanks again... I just took apart that spare dist to see how it goes together.. Not a big deal as you said.. Just picked up a Morison shim kit and Mr gasket spring and bushing kit today... Will get a reading of the initial , mechanical, and total timing of the car in a few days... I'm hoping that the dist in the car is just missing the limit bushing.
I filed the bead off to the original oval and pressed the bushing on the pin that came with the Mr. Gasket kit.
Same thing here, if I ever get this engine back together I will run it and do the trial and error thing when I run it.
