PostPost by: 1963Turnerjohn » Sat May 30, 2020 12:33 am

I’m in need of a Lucas 23D4 breaker plate (this is a mechanical advance distributor)

Need to get my distributor set for a soon to be dyno test

Thank you

Distributor Doctor has them. If you can't wait for overseas shipping or if they're temporarily closed I'm pretty certain I have a backup I'd sell for whatever it will cost me to replace it.

I would like to buy the plate from you to get it quicker (postage is taking up to 2.5-3weeks from
Overseas to Michigan)

The original breaker plates had a tall pin for the breaker points to be assembled upon, but about 1974, they replaced the plate under the same part number with a version with a shorter post that was only suitable for use w/ the "quick fit" points set. Only an issue I think, if you are still using points ignition. Ref: old about 1/2" tall. new about 1/8" tall just from memory.

Happy to help, I know how it is when you get close and need one last bit!

Agree Roger. For any others in need, Distributor Doctor does carry the tall pin breaker plate. I had an extra plate with plans to premake a plate with points and condenser as a travel back-up for easy swapping - easier to replace a plate than trying to fit and gap new points in situ.
