Appears to be the K-W brand 'distributor', uses the multi-coil principal, unlike the common single coil distributors. K-W made these in two styles, one for battery and one for magneto only powered Fords.
This one uses all four of the Ford vibrator coils, but shunts the vibrators, so you have four single fired coils, one for each plug.
Well, my first impression was that it is an elevated timer but the more I studied the photographs the more I was drawn to the large size of the cover at the top. It is suggestive that there may be more inside than just a simple roller type of switch as a timer could have.
That unit is intriguing. Bill
I am wondering about the timing gear cover and generator. The shape of the oil filler spout is different and the odd part mounted on the generator.
Along with the crank shaft pulley, narrow nose pan, 1 piece valve cover block and early style fan. Neat bunch of parts put together to keep the rig on the road.
I don't think the timing cover is non Ford but when I pull the gen and dist I'll know. The gen is the type that has a gov built in. The crank pulley is for a v belt and I can't remember if 3 or 4 dip. Tomorrow when I get home I'll work some on it. The engine is free but only turns owner a bit till it stops. The dist or gen I think is keeping it from turning all the way over. Report later what I find.
I have a pair of KW Timers. Interestingly they have a set of points inside that breaks the coil circuit along with the roller. I don't understand why they chose to add the points, except that they would use less battery power when operating on 6 volts.
