distributor identification

Post by George B » Sun Nov 12, 2017 2:31 pm

Hi, any one know how to identity if a Lucas 35DMB dizzy is for a carb or EFI engine, as I'm told the advance curves are different.

The bobweights on my distributor are stamped with a number (13°, times by 2 = 26° advance in theory), if they're all similarly stamped this may help you identify which is which?

Different advance curves according to the CR on carb engines too.

Thanks for the replies guys 😆 the minefield just gets bigger😢 I was kind of hoping for a list similar to engine number ID's that tells what vehicle the engine was from😕
