I got the rotor, shes a beauty !!!!
The overall quality is a A++ , i will check the fit and function later this week but the overall impression so far is very good !!
I will run it under some load and put some volts thru it for a period of time on the tester as time permits. Stay tuned......

I have a machine that would have no problem making this part.The only problem is would it be economically worth while.At $100each I would need to make about 25 roters to make it worthwhile.Phil

I'd be interested in a couple of rotors when available. I admire you for following through with this time consuming but highly worthwhile project.
Thanks Paul J.

Bought a couple of caps from Drake and would be smart for me to have a spare rotor and points. Did I mention points? Perhaps the points could be offered from the same source. Kinda like one stop shopping. Watching this string for developments and needing one to protect my investment. Thanks: Fred A

I've had this H-C distributor base for umteen years. Without the other parts, I had pretty well given up on resurrecting this treasure piece. BUT...aftr following this post, and finding the distributor, is it possible to have all of the missing parts co complete?? If so, I'm in.
Model # 14 Serial 3074 Please let me know....and I can send to Babbas for a make-over..........Robert

You will need both pieces , the internal ring and the rotor. Then it can be built....
