Re: [T3] Distributor Drive Question

<x-flowed>Early T3s engine # 1-255399 used ZV/PAU4R4 and ZV/PAU4R6 dizzys. This constitutes 61-63. Ive only seen R6s used and am going to search for an R4 for my collection (just to have).

The T1 ZV/JU 4R3 does look to be used on engine # 255340-633330. Not sure if they were "N" aplication or not and or maybe low octane flat top dual carb 1500 motors. I will have a close look at my work manuals and see if any pics or verbage backs this up. Then Like Russ said the ZV/JCU 4R3 was used at the same time according to the numbers and is the only one Ive seen on original T3 1500 S motors. This carb seem to be a pretty rare bird.

Checking on the engine number and parts book info it looks like the 111
distributors were used in the lower spec single carb engines, and all '65 models
had retarded #3 distribs, but not sure about '64 1500S with the 311---205R
distrib as it's not on Russ' page.

All of the '64 1500S that I have seen or heard about recently have had the ZV/JCU 4 R 3 distributor. Now, it would be nice if I could get one of the ones I have on a distributor machine and check them out. Most of the shops I know nowdays, don't even know what points are let alone have a distributor machine.
