    This is really helping me out with my build.
    Great work.
     
  3. Sorted out the distributor this weekend.
    I borrowed an old original Hemi distributor off Jer and I had an old mallory dissy from a SBC.

    first job was to strip the mallory unit down and cut it to length

    Next put it in the lathe and turn the diameter down.

    then I made up an ally adapter and pressed it onto the dissy body.i then pressed the bronze bush back into the end of the body.

    here they are side by side

    Next job was to modify the drive shaft. First cut it to length
    [a href="http://s21.photobucket.com/user/kelvindunn/media/Hemi%20Coupe/distributor013.jpg.html"][img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b254/kelvindunn/Hemi%20Coupe/distributor013.jpg" style="max-width:100%;"][/a]

    Then machine the flats on the end of the shaft. I don't have a mill so had to make do with the lathe.

    Put it all back together and it fits a treat. The plan is to fit a petronix kit in it.
