Joe; I do not have a picture of it, but I know that it looks like a "cam" as found in a distributor, and takes the place of the "roller" used in a standard timer.

If you believe that you have one, I sure would like to buy it.

My mail: crankirby@yahoo.com ( "crankirby" because I grow cranberries)

The one part in the picture is the same as in Ed's picture. Let me know if that is what you are looking for.

Joe; the one I need is the one pictured at 9 O'Clock on the left side of the photo. The Duntley is an interesting device. I have never used one; and my main driver is a 1914 with a dist. The Duntley is going on a 27 tourer ( late April build date) under restoration. It came with new coils, so I decided to run it with a timer which led me to the Duntley. I am still in the market for any other duntley with the "roller type" cover and cam.

Thanks again for the help.

When I got my car it had one on it, thought it was an interesting timer but did not want to wear it out from all the running I do, I have put it up some where but have not found it yet, will keep looking. It seemed to me as the one I have had a different name but looked the same with the breaker points and rollers in it? Send me an address off line and I will ship the roller out to you.
