    Re: Guaging interest on TIII distributor plates and machined cam ends!

    I'm interested, although a little soon for me to commit. After my Lancer project is done, I'm putting a TIII in my Omni with distributor. I had originally planned on a distributor in the stock location, but that would mean getting a very expensive intake manifold to provide clearance. Will this fit a TIII L-body?

    Count me in. Just so long as the price is reasonable. How exactly does it make a seal and how does the dist. connect to the cam? Seems like it would be an easy fix to doing the wiring on my T3 L body.

    Not sure, you would have to measure, I don't have an L body,

    From the guy in the thread I posted, It uses the stock O-ring and I guess just use sealer for the head to the plate. I haven't looked that far into yet but will in the next week.

    count me in....... have enough invested in smec's that it would be worth it. Not to mention I currently need a crank sensor that would no longer be needed. Now if someone has a good t-3 cal for a smec.

    Just got my cams back from Delta with their high performance grind. Going to make me cry to have the exhaust cam cut on. Will have to find someone trustworthy to do the mod.

    I could be wrong but don't the ends come off? thats what I meant by getting them cut. There is a screw but I haven't messed with them to know exactly what that does?

    Re: Guaging interest on TIII distributor plates and machined cam ends!

    I think I'd get one, too. If it's reasonable. It looks like a pretty simple flat plate, so I could make it myself at work - given the time.

    No, the ends don't come off. The screw is a plug for oil galley which is the center of the cam.

    I'm interested. Count me in.

    I did one like that. I just used a little bit of ultra grey silicone on the plate. Also you need to do some other mods to the pick-up wheel as the distributor will turn backwards on the cam and also swap the trigger wires.

    Im confused here Simon. John did the same thing, and used a distributor a few years back. He's saying what else needs to be done for the distributor to work..... what are you talking about?

    Any known wear issues with this mod. Would hate to have distributer shafts snapping off. Still want to try it.

    Re: Guaging interest on TIII distributor plates and machined cam ends!

    So I assume that the exhaust cam will need to be notched some way for the dist to fit into? Does the dist need to be shortened?

    According to the thread I linked to, if you use a 1/2 thick plate, no dist mods are needed. Yep, just notch out the exhaust cam end.
