Recommended Posts

The 1947 Plymouth I recently bought came with a distributor other than the ones mentioned in the 1946-1952 shop manual.It is marked model 644U Chrysler Motors Solar Spark Ignition, Delco-Remy.No vacuum advance,and never had one.What looks like a metal dial on side.Saw a similar one on ebay except marked IGC4501-1Auto Lite,Chrysler Corp. Solar Spark Ignition,that came out of a 1939 Dodge truck.Why no vacuum advance,and is this usable on my Plymouth.It is not currently running.

mlander is right autolite #igs-4207-1 is the right distributer for your car, but to help narrow your search , the 1949/50 Plymouths were fitted with three different distributers, one, Autolite #igs-4207b-1 has the same specs as the one that fits your car .also i beleive any of the disys from the early 50's Plymouths will work in your car with minor adjustments to the timing.

HI Guys, real new to the club and site, but arrived and joined the club and was hunting for info on my 1930 Dodge DA Six 4 Door sedan.

I ended up here because I have an Auto Lite IGS 4207-1 distributor on my engine! From your discussion I take it this is NOT the correct one for this car. Since the car is a driver, I want to get a cap and rotor and point etc for this one while I hunt for the correct stuff.

Nice to meet others interested in these cars!
