I was talking to Skip this morning and he said he uses Standard brand on the distributors he rebuilds. He said he has never had a set of them that didn't come right in on the dwell settings. We have seen distributors that another person has done and were sent to him and they were no were near being on the dwell settings and they wouldn't come in, the points had to be changed to set these distributors. As I said many times you can't set these distributors like the factory without a machine. When set on a Ford stobe machine there is no guessing, they work every time. G.M.
