Default Model B distributor

Does the B distributor use a different cap than an A? I didn't know about the slot for the timing lever on the A.

The same, except the alignment notch is 90 degrees off from the Model A, so all later caps were made with 2 notches in order to fit both models.

The B cap has wires that plug in for later years but the early ones were like a Model A.
