I have a 2010 with the prestolite distributor.
It is the original, and the bushings are work out. prestolite parts are hard to come by... can a replace it with a delco unit?

Yeah, i can get cap, points rotor and condenser for all types, as well as springs and weights for the delco, but not for the prestolite... hence my conundrum. The springs are broken, and i would disagree with anyone who would say to use a "universal automotive spring set". Last time i checked, my 2010 doesnt hit 6200 rpm :P

I have my own machine shop, so i could redo the bushings myself, but the springs are broken, and the weights are gone. My pops said they were gone when he bought the thing. Probably whys its run like a turd for 25 years.

I can find a new prestolite of the exact same type for 175 plus shipping plus 75 core. If it lasts another 25 years, that may be the way to go. I was just looking for something i could still entirely rebuild ala delco.

yup, just did that!

Thanks for the tip.

Looks like there is a presto and delco type in both tang drive and gear!

Looks like i should be able to use the delco (i think) However all 4 pn's are NLA....

Guess ill have to pull it, and got to an online retailer i found that carries rebuilt units.

Thanks guys

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Doesn't John Deere have a website you can go to and look up the parts diagrams? You should be able to compare the two distributors and see if there are any differences in how the two are mounted, how they are driven, etc. Just off the top of my head, I can't imagine there would be any REAL differences, and I would think the Prestolite and the Delco would be readily interchangeable.

I doubt there is any real reason for your tractor to have the Prestolite instead of the Delco, except for the fact the Prestolites were what was available on the particular day your tractor was built.

Earl, i really appreciate the response, but im not too keen on using another prestolite. The rebuild parts seem to be a real bugger to get a hold of.

If have have to go that route, then thats what im dealing with i guess.

What i would really like, is to use a delco. Can i replace this cruddy presto magic piece of crap with a delco?

Thanks

Stu

It is an IBT 4101R 8M.

I havnt pulled it yet, cause i want to make sure I have one to replace it immediately. We only have this tractor, and NEED it all the time. The problem is im not sure if its gear drive, or tang.
Really the biggest problem is that its ALWAYS wet in the cap (i think there might be a bad seal) the bushings are loose, the advance springs are broken, etc etc.

Weve always had starting issues with this thing, and i want to convert it to 12v neg ground.
What i WANT to do, if i can is use a delco. Is there a delco number i can take to my automotive parts guy and get the WHOLE distributor?

My dad has been battling this thing for the 25 years weve owned it, and im finally at the point were i know enough to be dangerous, and i figure id best fix the damn thing before he burns the shop down (cause he wants to light the damn tractor up lol)

Thanks guys

Stu

Yes, delco units 1112577,1112623 and X-23226 will work but sub to AT361T,AT14119T and AR11145R as per my book. They also used a Wico distributor, but stay away from those, they are worse for parts than prestolite..

Would you like to buy a new Prestolite Distributor for your tractor? I think I can help you if you give me the number off the old dist.

You can rplace the bushing.usually the bushing and the shaft are worn so the shaft is turned and the ID of the bushing is reamed to fit. If you have an auto electric shop near you they can usually rebush them. If not, try www.the philbingroup.com. They did one for me about 5 years ago.
