Distributor 0370

Hi there forum..
I am looking at the diz in my 64 project car..the number on it seems to be 0370.

Is that correct for a 110? I also have a spare diz with the 0319 number. Which would be a correct for a 64 110 diz? Thanks for any reply

I understand a complete check of all internal diz parts would be needed as well.

Steve sez: Yes Tim. Only John can help with history
of the engine. He states a 64 car but of course the
engine can be any year/model.

From a parts list, the shaft, cam and springs are unique to the 370 dist. Weights are used in a few 66 / up distributors. 217 is the vacuum advance.

Hi guys, getting back to this late...my motor is a yn block, with correct 64 head 3819876. The blower fan is indeed a 64 mag one. I appreciate the convo about all of this. I haven’t pulled the diz..I actually may try to start it possibly. I have the 319 diz on the bench from the 65 spare motor.

Thanks for all the input

The car sat for 30years. It does turn over but has so much mouse residue in the head fins and cylinders I hate to even start it. I will probably pull the whole drivetrain to clean it up

Just to follow up on this thread I thought i would include a pic of this distribtor as installed on my 64 coupe project.



It seems to have a 154 cam, a 536 shaft, "e" weights, and a 230 vac can.

All of this seems to be consistant with a 68 110 as mentioned to me via e-mail from Robert Lane. I have found that someone may have installed this just beofre it was parked 30 years ago or so since it seems so clean an unused inside.
I will most likely start this vehicle up as is to check it's timing curve.

Since I usually time a vehicle I own with a vacuum gauge anyway, and check it's overall response with a timing light I should be able to figure out it's practical range well enuf to drive it with non-ethonol premium w/o spark knock..we'll see.

This is a fun journey gwetting acquainted with these easy-to-work-on cars once again..

Have fun today everyone.
