They are original CA plates, but if you notice, it is 1969. I don't think these are the original plates. I think when Richard Ward Anderson, the second owner purchased the car around March of '69, he got new plates with it. As they start with a "Y

.. With the pictures and emblems there is no more room...
I have never pulled one apart, but I am sure there isn't much to it. Remember it was advance starts at 11-1200 and all in by 2800-3000. Has 18 mechanical and 10 vacuum. You would think they would have found an issue when it was in the distributor machine. It had a lot of play, so I see little brass spacers/washers in it. I don't know, maybe I will watch a couple videos on how to do it. I do have an extra 532 point plate assembly with the shaft and all. But I think you are right, it has to be something shorting out. The problem is these companies take on too much work, and blow thru stuff to fast. I have had maybe 2 or 3 call backs in 25 years! Ya have to be able to turn work down sometimes, so you can put out consistent quality work. I have passed all State and Federal Inspections. I have worked on 10 million dollar homes with live baby Dolphins in the swimming pool! Never had a problem. Simple distributor that they have done 1000 times, and it's not correct. I need somebody with a good updated machine that rolls up to 6K and has a recent calc inspection for accuracy.
I am more concerned about the carb right now. But while it's down I'll check it out and see what I find. I'll post pictures as I go.
I also need someone that can rebuild my original Master, and both front 4 piston calipers in BRASS. Power Brake Exchange is about an hour and 30 minutes from me, but only uses stainless. I guess that's the more of a show car thing. It's all about what happens with the carb thing. I can't afford to have all this done right now. As long as Charlie lets me keep the Dist. for a couple months, maybe I can get some Winter CA drives in on nice days... Danny
