Back in the day distributor mod?

Post  75truck on July 10th 2016, 1:46 am

Here is a distributor I got in a box of misc. parts and I noticed the lower shaft had 4 welds on it.  

Very interesting.

Any have any comments?

Is this a good idea?

Looks like it was welded so that the roll pins will not shear. Perhaps someone was having a problem with shearing the rollpins and this was their "fix"
