  • Ignition: Missing Parts for Autolite 1GC 4802 distributor for 1950 2R11 truck, looking for vendors

    I just picked up a 1950 2R11. It is missing a few items like the breather, window glass, the breaker plate for the distributor, etc. The distributor is an Autolite 1GC 4802 11 C. Does anyone know where I can get either the plate or a whole new one?

    Try and contact Bud on this forum, he's a distributor guru!

      Your best option is to find, ask for, do wanted Ad for a Used Autolite Distributor for the 245 Commander Six, Car or Truck.

      These are way easier to find than the Breaker Plate. Getting that hard to find breaker plate is your first issue, THEN it could be properly "Set up" by someone like Bud who has a Distributor Machine to test and set it up correctly.

        I see 'dual point' distributor plates for Stude engines all the time...

        Here's an Ebay setup:

            Unfortunately, those are both for small Champion Sixes, maybe others will show up later.
