Auto-Lite Distributor Information

Hello,

I am rebuilding a Auto-Lite distributor model number IGB-4010A, 4 cylinder.
Does anyone have a timing advance curve for this distributor?

Thank you,

Kurt

I've never seen anything published about a curve. Maybe, set the engine up similar to another 4 cylinder Continental on a welder.

There is a previous thread, If you use the key word search "Distributor timing curve" above in the search block, there is more info, but no curve chart as per say.

Re: Auto-Lite Distributor Information

The topic "Distributor timing curve" was from a customer that was looking for the information for me when I was rebuilding his distributor back in 2009.

For those that do not know, the timing curve information is on the bottom of the page called STANDARD AUTO-ELECTRICIAN'S MANUAL under IGNITION and it is listed as Automatic Advance, aka Timing Curve.

The degrees of advance are noted in both flywheel and distributor RPM.

I have the information for the IGB 4001B, IGB 4007, & IGB 4008 if anyone needs it.

Thank you,

Kurt

Do you have the information on Autolite IGB-4001a. I would like to check mine & rebuild if needed. Not sue how much it is supposed to advance. Can I check it and or adjust it on a bench??

Thanks
