Default Cletrac OC-3

A buddy is having trouble with his Cletrac. For one thing, the points are burned out and he can't seem to find them locally. It is a Herc motor but he is not providing me with much detail on numbers, etc.. He sent some pix.
he mentioned something about the distributer being #1GB4010A/8H? That might be a Prestolite #.
I thought he should put a ballast resistor on it too.
Anyway, might anyone know what he needs and where they can be found.
Thanx,
RM

G That doesn't look like an original IXB Herc engine. The original uses a wico mag mounted just ahead of the Carb on the right side of the engine. There were 2 versions of some of the Herc a 3 gear[Original IXA or IXB] and a 4 gear [ timing gears up front] This looks like a 4 gear but not sure without better pics. I have owned 10 of these little crawlers and none have had a distributor on them. This engine may have come out of some other piece of Equip. like compressor or generator. The Distributor will do fine but as you say may need a good old fashioned tune up.
PS send me your address by PM so I can send the Case pics you were interested in. Just found them buried in a pile on my desk.

Back in the 50s the distributer companys sold adapters to replace flange mount mags. some times that was cheaper than repairing the original mag.

Just a wild guess, but other bigger Hercs used a Malory distributor that could be replaced with an IAD Autolite when Malory parts were no longer available. A four hole IAD with the right drive gear might drop into that engine. Auto parts stores still have parts for them because they were used with a long shaft in flat-fender Jeeps.

may not be much of an answer, but it came at not much of a price...
