  • 70 vs 90 Distributor Question

    Went from 30's to 90's here so not sure about this... Is the distributor on a 70 the same as the one a 90xl? Found some real cheap spares that came off of some 70's that I thought I would pick up if I can use them..

    Again, thanks in advance!

    They will them if they are a good deal.

      Buddy of mine says he will take 50 a piece for them, I would think they have to be worth that if they are decent!

        The support castings alone are worth $100s. Id buy em

          They are more or less mechanically identical. The only thing that would be different from a 70 to a 90, is on the 70's you'll run into old designs of certain components that are no longer made, but function the same as the newer version of the part in question. At $50 for the entire assembly, you're damn near robbing him.

          On a side note, 30's to 90's...APPLES AND ORANGES!!!!!!!!!! Get used to not doing much.
          Change the chassis, is not the answer.

            $50 is a steal, even if they have problems. Brand new distributors are around $1,200-$1,400.
            If it cant be fixed with a hammer, use a bowling pin.

              4:1 Timing off..

              *sigh* Hello friends..

              I had a 4:1 go bad and I've never seen or done one before. Trying to search the depths of the forums, YouTube videos, it didn't seem too bad....

              Left a rant about this in the bowling forum…

              I’ve already repaired a a number of Franklin FE motors using the Bluffton-style end cap and terminal board kit (090-004-582)....

              At what thickness do you replace the clutch face.
              Is there a minimum dimension from the clutch face to the rivet.

              Is anyone running the solderless relays on the accelerators? How do you like them? What brand? How difficult to convert was it? Would love the feed back as I'm about to switch...
