my opinion....   It looks like it was a 1111481 and they changed it to 480.

Compared stamped to my original. All I can say is that if that  is a re-stamp, then the fraud quality is getting scary. On my dist, however, the  year stamp '8' (mine is '68 manuf) is closer to the date. Don't know if that matters.

I am looking for a may 111480 as well, and have looked closely at this one sold by the king. It would be nice if Kurt or Jerry would share their knowledge here.

Sorry, your reputation precedes you. Thought you may have a decent picture library of original 1111480 distributors, or would have a decent knowledge to tell if this one was original or not.

I have thousands of engine pad pics. But I had to draw the line somewhere. Smiley

lol, I understand Kurt. Based on the pictures provided here I would still appreciate your opinion. What is your take? a 111481 that has been changed?

May be a restamp as there appears to be a "1" hiding under the left edge of the "0". I have a 481 distributor with a build date of 9 D 1 and other than the "0" it appears exactly the same.......RatPack...............

great pictures guys, another difference is how oval the zero is vs. the other 480 the zero is more round in the stamp. I think we have our answer, i wonder if the King over paid for it or if made it?
