1111263 Delco Remy distributor
« on: September 04, 2006, 02:20:42 PM »
Anybody know the original application for this distributor?  It is a tach drive, cast iron, mag pulse with an assembly date of September 26, 1968 and does not appear to be listed in the 1965-1969 "Chevrolet by the Numbers".

The 1111263 is the highly prized “Ball Bearing” distributor. This was a heavy duty version initially released for the reverse-drive camshaft 427 big block racing engine. It has a special ball bearing on the upper part of the mainshaft instead of the usual bronze bushing. It also has an iron housing with a mechanical tach drive and a special reverse-drive distributor gear that permitted normal clockwise rotation of the distributor in this special 427 engine. It was specified not to have a vacuum advance. (The plate inside the distributor was fixed in position.) This distributor listed for $1,699.05 in the 1991 Chevrolet parts books! I know of several Corvette guys that would love to have a chat with you!!

Ed, thanks for the information.  This distributor was available then only as a "service part" as opposed to being delivered on any particular big block car, (similar to the crossram intake for the small block) right?

I have a transistorized distributor the number on the band is 1111263 Delco Remy and it has a 1F3. I also have the box that goes with it and I have a wiring harness for it. I am not sure if I have the coil. I have had these pieces quite a few years. If you are interested in any of this please make me an offer.  please email me at tlclark28@alltel.net or call 706-270-0004.
