    Yes, one hole is just not used and doesn't affect anything. My '41 came stock with that setup.

    i would go after a two bolt timing cover and use the later crab distributor. easier to work on, and shorter if you are putting it in the A in your avatar

  5. I have used a divers helmet distributor in my avatar for 20 years and it has performed flawlessly. Oh damn, have I just jinxed myself?
