I should have also posted the rest of the Turner Timer stuff when I posted the brush this morning so here goes.

The unit in the photo below is marked TRACTOR and is cast aluminum and the other is die cast pot metal. Notice that the armored cable enters the one marked TRACTOR from the bottom of the timer more or less rather then up by the control rod loop like the die cast unit.



Here's an original box for the timer.



Here are several that need a rebuild.

Interestingly, Gary White just posted a picture of one yesterday.

Is that a Turner or a Spinner?

I think it just moves when you adjust the spark:-)

Jay,
The tractorone would work well on RHD cars, as the timer is installed with the linkage hole at the bottom.

Allan, thanks for the info. I would have never thought of that myself since we have so few RHD T's here.

Here is a Turner found on a RHD T here in New Zealand, so they made it all around the world :-)

Notice the RHD has lugs cast both top and bottom, so could be used LHD or RHD.
Cheers
Adrian
