Chrysler/Maxwell distributor interchange

Thank you. That should expand my search window. I’ve exhausted every known lead to date. Still hope something will emerge from the forum.

are you talking about the actual distributor or the diecast metal right angle drive

The diecast right angle drive. With that, I am hoping that I can either find the correct distributor body or at least adapt one that will give good service.

OK add Plymouth U & Q to your search list, pretty sure the 28 - 30 Plymouths used the same distributor.

I have a 29 Plymouth distributor.  Unfortunately, I sold the right angle base a few months ago.  I can post pictures if you're interested.

The P/N for the Q bracket/base is 815827 and for the U, 829188.  They are different in some regard.  I believe the Q would have a better chance of fitting the Maxwell engine.

A friend had one machined from a block of aluminum for his 29U Plymouth.  Here's a picture of a 29U base.  Note the fractures and the shaft doesn't turn freely either.

Good luck,  frank
