I was not aware that a timer relocator existed until recently. I started looking at distributors on ebay, but decided to stay with the original coils and timer on my car. I saw , listed as distributors, the things that are really only adapters that move a timer upwards to near cylinder head level. Anybody on here use one? They would be good for someone like myself. A handicap makes it difficult and painful to work on the timer on my car. thanks
Maybe you would be better off with a lower maintenance timer like TW timer or one of the New Day models? I have a TW timer on my car and I just take the cover off once a season and blow it out after checking the brush. The only caveat is that you do need to have a modern neoprene seal installed to prevent engine oil from leaking into the timer case.
I recently installed a Thomas "timer elevator" - had it for 30 years and finally figured to put it to good use - had to manufacture a new timer rod - 7/32 is the original size rod BUT the lead hole in my original New Day is 1/4" - little sloppy !
