FS: Gilfillan Distributor....

Post by George House » Tue Nov 19, 2019 12:45 pm

....decidedly not for a Model T. Was an incorrect unit on a 2 cylinder car I acquired years ago. The previous owner couldn’t find the rare correct magneto. I could so this is now excess. Mounted on a custom aluminum bar to obtain correct height to the cam gear. $35 + actual shipping.

One of the biggest problems with today’s youth is they’ve never known the fear of hearing leather being rapidly pulled through seven Wrangler belt loops.

The unit is an Atwater Kent magneto replacement unit, with a model CC distributor. The Gilfillan name plate is from the company that made the cap. Gilfillan was an early aftermarket ignition parts manufacturer. Gilfillan eventually became Bear, then Echlin and finally today we know them as NAPA.

Thanks for the history Tom...a precursor to NAPA, huh? Unit is in good shape. Cute oilers for shafts. Aluminum block machined to fit s 2 cylinder Maxwell. Would suffice until someone can find s Splitdorf H magneto...
