Nice Atwater-Kent K-2 distributor with rotor and two caps. No perceptible wear in bushings and turns free and very smooth. Asking $200.00 including shipping.

Hey Hank; Actually this thing is way more complicated and precise than a T timer. lol. Lots of the mechanisms designed and built over 100 years ago display amazing engineering and manufacturing practices and constructed with equipment run by jack-shafts and belts.

Hey but it is still simple and you can take it apart and repair even after 100 years! Does it throw stupid computer codes?
