As pictured, the unit is in good condition and spins freely. I believe it is a mechanical advance unit but has a mounting screw for a manual advance bracket. The condenser is there but is untested. The points plate is present. It is missing the points, cap, and rotor, but they can be sourced for about $120 and I can supply contact info for a buyer.

$90 obo or trade for a pair of Stromberg LF's.

It's auto advance. The screw is the clamping screw. After it's timed is clamped down so the head remains stationary.

Might be a good idea to twitch the camshaft gear, collar, pin and nut to the body with tie wire so they cannot be lost, The base gear is probably worth more than the rest of the distributor ?

Brass,
I am doubtful of the value of just the gear being worth more than the whole unit. New gears can be bought for $30.
This is the slightly harder to find mechanical/automatic advance unit.

I was meaning that they are worth buggerall without the drive gear. So many got left on the camshaft when someone "saved" the distributor from an engine going to scrap. I have several of these and there are different gear sets.

I understand now. Agreed. I have a feeling they changed through the years with different shaft sizes, etc.

All the styles of Bosch 600 type clip on use the same gear sets and 1/2 inch spacer. The Bosch and Atwater Kent LA clip on type distributors, you can buy new gear sets.

No longer for sale.
Distributor has severe cracks in cast housing and is being returned to the prior owner.

Alas! that is the only problem with some of the Bosch housings. The potmetal seems to go on them. For whatever reason, the little Atwater Kent LA's hold up much better .
