Classic American cars

SUN MDT DISTRIBUTOR TESTER, SET ADVANCE CURVE, TEST CONDENSERS AND POINTS ETC.

SUN MASTER DISTRIBUTOR TESTER FOR SALE

Works well but needs cleaning and calibrating.

Strobe / flashtube works as it should.

Unfortunately it got damaged somewhere en route from sunny California, the aluminium slider got broken, it’s been professionally welded and it works just as it should.

Rev counter goes up to 2500 rpm which is 5,000 crankshaft rpm which should cater for most American engines as you’ll want all of your advance in well before that.

Great man cave item and definitely a conversation starter.

Test that your distributor works, check points and condensers, check centrifugal and vacuum advance and adjust as necessary, check lobe separation and set dwell angle. A built in vacuum pump enables you to check the amount of vacuum advance at any given vacuum number and rpm.

This machine works on 110 volts 60hz, English droppers are 110 volts 50HZ so don’t work properly, we use a transformer step up step down which is available on eBay for less than £30, that powers the electric motor, the strobe / flashtube is powered by a 6 volt battery, we use a mobility scooter battery and the gauges are powered by 2 ‘D’ cell battery’s. All of those can be replaced by new electronics from the USA and the flashtube can be swapped to an LED.

£1,000 or best offer.

Prefer collection from Norwich but I can strap it to a pallet if necessary which would be entirely at your own risk!
