You should have a LH engine

E5JL-12100-CA is the tag on my 1989 LH rotation 351w so I can assure you that is the correct distributor for a LH, CCW or standard rotation Mastercraft Ford engine. I'm not going to speculate on the sellers description.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. . .



Yes indeed! But I broke one off on the other side now. It broke near the head so should be ok. I ordered a socket with an integral u joint to get number four out. Those are hard to find.

Ok got the exhaust system restoration done. As for the distributor, if I grab the rotor and turn it back and forth through the advance, I can feel a "bump" about halfway. I discovered that if I manually turn the rotor over that bump and get it to base timing, the engine will fire up immediately when I go to start it. So I am sure that the rotor is getting stuck, and that is the problem. I may get a nos distributor, but it would be interesting to fix this one if possible. Already tried some wd40, but that didn't help free it up at all.

WD = water displacement. Try a real penetrant like I suggested previously.

Oh I thought you were suggesting it for the stuck broken off bolts! I guess it wouldn't hurt to put it in the distributor mechanism.

The bolts are all taken care of. 20 to the machinist and the two nasty ones were out. But I do need to have a working distributor!
