rustred said: (quoted from post at 08:53:44 11/05/12) actually there was a write up on dist's in the red power mag couple years ago and i think they mentioned some models.ooh now i wish i had that red power binder to keep issues in order, darn it.i'll try to find it when i get a chance.

That would be cool if you found it!

Obviously any of the A/B/BN distributors would work on my A but I wonder if the SA (C113), SA (C123) or any of it's kin would work too? The SA with the C113 ran at a higher RPM if I recall correctly but other then that was the same engine. The SA (C123) - 140 obviously are a bit different.

I wonder how many people blindly buy the wrong unit just because a seller on eBay says it will bolt up?

Any "wrong" distributor will work on any tractor from the A thru the 450, EXCEPT the W9 gas and all gas-start diesels - these spin the opposite direction. However maximum power and fuel economy will suffer slightly unless the correct distributor is installed.

AFIK the various distributor timing curves are achieved by swapping springs in the centrifugal advance. So theoretically you should be able to get the correct curve for your A by installing the correct springs. However finding the right springs today may be a problem(!)
