Oh, yes, but I adapted a spring instead of the one that was broken. Since more problem.

Some of you might find this helpful when sorting out your distributor. Most of the information was originally provided by Bob Grunau.

In reply to # 3833707 by jimmac48 I use a piece of scrap oak wood about 1/2 thick. It is notched to fit over the hinges on the tool box and notched on the ends to accept the bonnet. Stores easily behind the tool box with the fuel stick when not in use.

I have the same piece for mine. Only difference is I put felt in the cuts to protect the hood.

Crude but effective!

Setting the toe using using this method is extremely simple and accurate. Make sure your wood stick is straight, don't over tighten the cable tie to cause deflection. Black marks indicate tire diameter, precisely set with a ruler to 1/8th toe-in.
