Q & A

What's in the Box

Sometimes we want to mix and match parts different than Henry planned. These spacers allow you to swap distributors around on your flathead. This adaptor fits most aftermarket performance cams. In some cases, earlier stock engines may have a "shallow-nose" camshaft. If that is the case, the drive tang on the distributor will not contact the slot in the cam and the distributor will spin freely after installation. Should this occur, you will need to purchase a cam button spacer such as Speedway # 910-12710.

Worked like a charm

June 08, 2015
The adapter worked great for me to mount a 1942 "Crab" style distributor on my '40 Ford flathead. A little rough around the edges that needs to be cleaned up to make it look good.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Good Fit

August 20, 2014
These are a good fitting piece. They are CNC machined out of billet. To make them look more like an original Harmon-Collins part I sandblast then tumble them. These also work to install a 2 bolt 42-48 distributor on a 37-40 60HP.
Yes, I recommend this product.
