Charlie, as far as I can tell Chalmers used the following ignition sytems: 1908-14 - magneto ignition 1914-16 - Atwater Kent battery ignition 1916-24 - Remy battery ignition 1923 - Auto-Lite battery ignition The following distributors had been used: 1914-16 - Atwater Kent K-2 1916 - Remy 209-A and 209-E (manual advance only) 1917-23 - Remy 355-A (manual advance only) 1923 - Auto-Lite IG-4039A 1924 - Remy 616-F They should have the same mounting (not sure on IG-4039A and 616-F).
