Factory Distributor Assembly

Even after I replaced the fried coil with a good one, the worn factory points-type distributor's timing wandered like a drummer on heroine and downers. The shaft bushings were hammered and the plate pins were bent, allowing the points assembly to wobble in and out of time as the points bumped the shaft eccentric. Not worth saving, so I gladly ordered up a Performance Distributors DUI for my AMC 304 (PN 40820).
