I think this is the product. They have been selling them for a long time. I have no experience with them.

I installed one once for a fella a while back. As I recall, I had to file a "flat" onto the camshaft for the rotor to engage into. But, that was over a week ago, so my memory is suspect. :-) I was rather surprised when it worked. I assume that it is still working.

Fitted one up a couple of years ago for a fellow club member, as Tom said had to grind a flat spot on the cam shaft for the rotor button and it was on a RH drive as well, no problems that I can remember and I'm assuming it's still running on it.
If one can be found, I reckon a E timer would be better, less work to fit and still looks original.

I wonder if it uses a Ford 9N tractor cap and rotor? Perhaps the points and condenser too?

I have one fitted to one of my cars. It works perfectly and has done for 12 years now.
John Stoltz at Model T ranch makes them along side may other great products.
Should anyone be looking for a disturber for their T, I'd recommend one, most definitely. You can buy either 6V or 12V.
Cheers,
Rob

I've just re-read the thread and noticed the distributor is advertised on eBay through Macs.
I'd much prefer dealing direct with John Stoltz, the guy that makes them. http://modeltranch.com/show_product.asp?idProduct=4
I know HE CAN be trusted and he's good to deal with.
Sorry about the photo being on its side. In my file its upright, but I cant correct it here. WX?
Cheers again,
Rob

Hey Les I'm sure the cap and rotor are Honda accord not sure about points and condenser

Alot cheaper if you deal with Stolz directly. I have one and am installing it soon
