This is the distributor assembled with the shaft , the distributor top inserted into the flange, the bearing, shims and locking collar installed to pull all of the upper distributor together. The distributor body locking collar is locked up towards the top just to get it out of the way of installing the extension flange to extension bolts. It will be dropped down and locked in place. I still have to come up with some kind of distributor clamp that will lock down on the collar to hold the distributor from turning.
The fully assembled distributor and extension.
You can see that the distributor shaft is way too long and still round. I need to cut it to length and have the end machined down to a 3/8ths hex to fit into the cam gear drive stub.
I also bought a BOP oil pump drive with a composite gear.
That takes care of the oil drive.
In this pic you can see the alternator brackets. I still have to build a bottom slotted bracket for adjusting the belt tension. I'm mocking up a power steering pump for future use. I will probably go to a power steering box sometime later and I may go right to a Hydro Boost brake set up before putting the motor back in. So I'll need a pump. If you look at this pic you can see that the accessory belts just fit between the pulleys and the distributor extension. This requires me to hang the alternator and steering pump low or the belts will hit the extension.
I have to drop the steering pump lower. More to do.
