    I see what you mean. There is a "Plate #", 601-35; but no part#. The only #'s I have are the same as listed for the lower washers, 527332 & 527337.
    If you have your distributor apart, what is the shim id & od? I have a pack of shims from Sumitt,; and can compare.
    T-Bolt has some parts.

        Are they not the same as the lower washers?

          Forget Pertronix.....Dave Thibeault has brand new Mallory units that use light as the trigger, Uni-light I think they are called should last forever (yea I know, forever is a long time) But if one is in the market for an upgrade it can't hurt to chat with Dave before actually putting down hard cash for one.

            On the topic of R-series distributors, someone gave me a box of miscellaneous Stude parts the other day. One person from this forum got some freebie dash rocker switches from this mix. I've dug thru it and found a dual point plate that I presume is for an R-series engine. Looks to be in great shape - wearing two pair of points. Anybody want it? $4.10 postage gets it shipped to you!
