    Old Sun distributor machine. Newest spec on the list roll on top is 56 or 57. While digging through it I found the flathead distributor adapter too. A bonus. The clean up is a slow process and I haven't touched it in months. I also have a Sun 920 with the scope that I think dates back to the mid to late 60s. Can't find my pics of that one but i'll add some later. So, whatcha got in old Sun machines? I know there was a topic on it years ago in the main board but since we've become "antiquated" I thought I'd start this here. Allens are welcome also. Love old testing equipment...

  9. Damn. Ive always had a old Sun dist set up on my wish list so I could set and tune my old point dist`s to stock specs for my stock engines. Every one I find was questionable on if they worked and they wanted a small fortune for them.

    There are some cool old tools on here. Thanks for sharing guys.
    Here is a pic of the Sun Distributor machine at the technical institute I teach at.
    It has been there since it was brand new and has been used to teach distributor ignition up until last year when it was finally removed from the curriculum.
    It works perfectly and is in mint shape. IMG_8003.jpg
