Weasel Distributor??

Post by Agwrangler » Thu May 18, 2017 6:00 am

Hey Weasel guys,

I found a distributor on Craigslist that I THINK is Weasel but can't be sure. The Data plate is Delco Remy and the number stamped into it is 1111769 7A5

Any ideas?? I would upload a picture but lord, I have tried and tried and it never works. I will try anyways.

I would pass:
I think 4903A is the one your seeking based on the below e-bay sold one:

Bottom flange looks different on yours, (BOTTOM GEAR IS NOT M29) as do the clamp down pivot sections on the casing, stare at both a while.
Should be out of a Studebaker Model 6-170 Champion Engine.

This note from another forum: "Just heads up, check to see if either of your engines are original to your Weasel. The engines are pretty close to the same as what was used in a car but the distributors are different. (They rotate backwards if memory serves me correctly.)"
And follow-on: Weasel engines are quite different from a Champion engine. The early ones had cast-iron pistons, not aluminum, I believe. The distributor did turn backward, but that was due to their being an angle drive installed, so the distributor could sit upright, and close to the block, to make the engine profile narrower on that side. Water pump is also different, and sits in a special adaptor housing, too. Oil pan is different, too. Also the carb, and all electrical accessories. Intake manifolds were drilled and equipped with bungs for a primer system on some models, but I think the later ones abandoned that.

I don't think there are any major differences in the blocks or heads, and Weasel engines can certainly be adapted for use in Studebaker cars and trucks, and vice versa, but you basically have to strip it to the long-block point and go from there.

Jim, I have a complete Weasel engine, all apart, block, head, crank, rods, pistons, etc. Pretty sure it's rebuildable. Also other Weasel parts. Of course, I am a long way from you. You can PM me here if you have questions."

Check this post out the guy may have a Dizzy for you.

PS: if the photo's WAY too big, hold down your "Ctrl" button and hit the "minus" sign a few times. Reverse that using the "+" to enlarge.
