Dear 'shooting',

The standard and victory distributors are in fact interchangable as these engines are identical except for the letter designation in the serial number. Not sure about the senior as this is a 'off the shelf' Continental engine not Dodge Brothers. R.A.H.

Yes they are interchangeable, 2249, 2252, Vic, Standard, as are the 1929 DA. There were some differences, but all the changes over time were improvements, except for the DA which changed from dual points to single points. The purpose of the dual points was to enable much faster discharge of the coil than was possible with a single mechanical points. The earliest Senior had a different part number, the difference being the advance curve, but physically the distributors of all these cars will fit into your engine and will run. The Victorys also had a change mid-model with an improved advance curve. There are two buttons that stop the advance arms. The larger buttons are the preferred ones. This was the mid year change. Did you know you can buy an entirely machined aluminum distributor housing to replace the pot metal original from Glenn Smith in Australia? He also sells a "points plate" that enables you to use modern Bosch points instead of the $70 ea North East ones. His plate is for dual points. Also Romar sells an electronic unit to insert into your original housing. The electronic unit compensates for wear in the shaft/housing and will give you great performance in an old unit. Smith is at www.vintageandclassicreproductions.com. Romar is in Titusville PA and advertises in the club magazine. JCB

JCB,Thank you for your information.I have spoken to Glenn Smith ,he was not sure if his Standard/ Victory distributor would fit .Would you know if the top and bottom alluminum castings 10786A for the 1927 4, are the same as the Senior potmetal TU 10836?

This is JB altho it still says anonymous for some reason. We need someone with a North East book to tell if the base casting part number for these is the same. If so, then, obviously "yes." Which actual car do you have, Senior or Fast Four?

Glenn Smith has now been sent a SENIOR TU-10836 DISTRIBUTOR .It appears that the top section is the same as the 1927 4 cylinder, as is the bottom section outer casing.Glenn is also trying to work out a way to fit modern points in it.

What I sould have said :Glenn is also trying to work out a way to fit modern points, in his new top sections castings, to replace the original TU-10836 distributor casting.
