(Misspelling intentional in remembrance of Ralph Ricks )
Here's an accessory "disturbutor" a friend got with an extra engine he bought for his speedster build.
Oddly enough the camshaft gear doesn't have any key slot for indexing or rotation stop, so I wonder how well it could have worked? It's also a bit worn, so he may want a replacement gear.
No markings anywhere so I wonder if anyone recognize it and can tell what brand it might be - or could it have been home made?
Looks like Delco-Remy to me. Dave in Bellingham,WA
