I've been rolling this around in my empty hear for a couple days and can't imagine what the clip that goes under the rotor and on the dist. shaft actually does. If it is to set the rotor height, wouldn't the dust cap serve that purpose? In order of assembly isn't it clip then dust cap then rotor? I just can't picture any actual function for it other than just go round and round. An early thank u to anyone who can enlighten me.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeThere seems to be some confusion here unless you can point out where exactly I said they screwed up. You may want to reread the posts. What I mentioned was the fact that Henry specd. the pallets of ordered parts to fit his cars and he would cut them to use as free floorboards. Didn't even mention it just alluded to it. I got no chain of evidence on his, Delcos or anybody's dist. shafts.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI will get to my opinion sooner or later, but first I would like to know your chain of evidence leading to the conclusion that a Ford screw up made the shaft too small.

Please do elaborate JMOR. I haven't yet gotten an answer that holds much water and I am curious. It's been years since I've been inside a points dist. but I don't remember seeing a clip inside until my first look inside a Ford tractor.

Well, at least Henry used a metal clip and not something he whittled out of a made to order specd. pallet.

Dust cover, clip, then rotor. install rotor without the clip and feel it for looseness, then install rotor with the clip and feel the difference. The rotor needs to be snug on the shaft.

Are you talking about the spring clip, p/n 8N-12213, that goes on the shaft of the angle (side) mount distributor beginning with the early 1950 8N?
