Delco 640K Distributer???

Recommended Posts

I have a unit off a 28 and it is designated a 640Y. This unit should fit to your 27 generator. This distributer uses the cheaper Chevrolet points and the timing is adjusted by rotating the distributor -- rather than via the drive gear on the 27.

I use a distributor like this on my 27, it fits and works great.

Using a Hollander Manual as my reference, I have found that a Delco 640K was used on a 1929 Oakland All American 6. No other reference is made for the use of that distributor on any other vehicle.

The 640Y which Buicksplus mentions in the previous post is referenced for '30 Buick and '30-31 Yellow Cab Taxi 6.
