Delco Dual Ignition Distributor - Hershey


Recommended Posts

It's a firetruck distributor. Used from 1938 to about 1950. Can't remember the exact application but I have several of them on the shelf. The cars that used the dual plugs like Nash, Stutz, ext use the much larger distributor series than the one in your photo. On eight and twelve cylinder engines, they use two distributors.

My ignition books show that the cap and rotor are both used by Marmon for 1926-1927. The Model 74 and 75 used the same engine as the 34, and were dual ignition 6 versions of the Model 34 engine. There is a photo on  page 177 of the Marmon Heritage that shows the E-75 engine with the same distributor as mine on the end of the generator. I stand by my belief that this is a Marmon distributor...

If that is indeed an E75 Marmon distributor, Chiltons give some interchanges...

 

The contact arm was used in 10 models IA-10 (incl. 2 Packard, 1 Stutz, Hup E2, Cad 314)

the points IB-10 in 29 models (incl. 5 Packard, 2 Peerless, 3 P-A, 5 Stutz, 4 Lincoln, 4 Cad, 2 1927 Buick, Blackhawk L-6)

distributor cap IC-13 in 3 models (Blackhawk L-6, P-A "36")

rotor ID-12 in 3 models (Blackhawk L-6, P-A "36")

distributor shaft or coupling IH76 in one model.

 

The only trouble with all this is that the Marmon E75 had a distributor no. 17047. So this is not one of them!

The Standard Auto Electrician's manual 1928-1937 does not show a 666-G distributor as fitted to any vehicle (car).

 

The MoToR's Truck and Tractor Repair Manual 1950 lists 666-D, 666-F & 666-H but not what they fit.  Grrrr.
