    I have been running a slant 6 for years however I don't have any info on what you are looking for. I would recommend checking this site wwwslantsix.org they should be able to help you with all you need. Hobo Jim

    a bit of googling did not find any. I would guess it's a rare part. Good luck in your search.

    If a slant six was ever used in an industrial application you could look there.

    Haven't looked, but 1st guess would be used in a military application, like a power wagon or big(ger) truck.

    never seen one, nor a govenor type , and worked on many of them sewing machines .. I know on some of the liftrucks they used a cable drive off the generator to operate the governor for the the carb . but these were old .... and when we converted them to alternators we used a electronics box on them to do the switching .

    you can find tach drive distributors for some of the Mopar V8s. But they are quite different from the six distributor.

    Many swathers and Versatile combines used Slants, but never saw a tach drive on one.

    Hmm that is too bad. A slant six distributor is supposed to be an easy swap for the stock flat six part.

    Comparing the photo of the import to the photo of the box-o-distributors, it looks like they have enough similarities to get out the calipers and start measuring stuff.
    ...and they both spin the same direction.....
    I say that a tech thread is in order......;)
