Ever saw this type of front distributor?

What is the short top on this cap. There is a bolt on round coil on other side of engine.

How do I get myself into these strange parts?

Thanks Again.

... a regular "two-pop" John Deere Model B or Unstyled distributor

Hursty..... ....yep, its somebodys "custom" frontmount ignition coil adaptor, usually used as part of a 12 volt conversion. Iff'n yer greeny is still 6 volts, then its a still a custom conversion of the squarecan frontmount distributor 'cuz the original owner got bent outta shape over the OEM 6 volt squarecan ignition coil reliability issue. Eather way, unless yer having sparkie problems, I'd just letter go by..... ...Dell, the self-appointed sparkie-meister

Probably someone balked at the price of the right coil, and figured a good way to use a much cheaper automotive round coil. Long as it works, I'd leave it there. A green Ford ain't exactly gonna be parade queen! In fact, if you do take it apart, I'd be interested to hear what it's made of and exactly how it works.

Speaking of a green Ford, that reminds me of the guy who has a David Brown, and was always joking with his son about John Deeres being so great. So the son surprised dad by doing him a "favor" and painting the David Brown green and yellow for him.

I agree with let it be, only if I can determine if it is dependable.
I will take apart later and check it out.
Thank You for your input.

At least it wasn't made of wood!

Hey Soundguy,
Who knows it might be wood. The painter painted everything green but the wheels and tires.
I thought this might be a after market thing. Later when I tear into it I'll know more.
Thank you for the reply.

That was actually an inside joke about the wood.. Dell would know what I was talking about.

But you may be right.. hard to tell what the cap is made of till it comes off. But if it works.. it works..
