Re: 1923 Durant Star Distributor conversion

kenneth, could you tell me what delco distributor you used? I am a little confused for some reason my distributor has 12 teeth but has obvious signs of being modified to fit as does the drive gear on the generator. Could you also tell me what the tooth count is on your drive gear?

Re: 1923 Durant Star Distributor conversion

the jr mechanics from the bay area found a replacement distributor for James 1925 star. We used a 6 volt vw distributor and roger changed the gear. The nice thing is the distributor auto advances when starting.

I see these distributors on eBay. So far, No one can come up with a gear or gear number. My you can ask that Bay area mechanic what he used. Thanks for getting back to me Mike. Getting closer

Re: 1923 Durant Star Distributor conversion

Thanks Ken .. I'll notify Steve to update his Registry to show you the owner of the car. If you look in durantcar in DMAC your car is in the late Terry K's Alberta Registry. My 32 614 was last car he partly added in Dec 2006. To create Steve's Registry as many old lists as we can find have been used so owners are not always the same.

Perhaps with so many W4A / W5A's around someone might have the part you need for the W4A. Perhaps the Butters Boys in Cobourg cast them also.
