Ford Dura-spark distributor recurve
The Ford Dura-spark distributor
is an inexpensive and reliable
alternative to the expensive
aftermarket distributors. You
can find them for about $52.00
US retail and the recurve spring
kits are cheap at about $7.00
US. This recurving operation
usually takes me about an hour
or less. Just use care with the
little parts as they like to migrate
out of sight or flip half way
across the room.
