Lucas distributor thrust washers

Post by David Witham » Sat Apr 13, 2019 7:41 pm

Earlier today I stripped down a distributor that I was planning to use. The trust washers in it are worn and as there is vertical shaft movement I would like to replace them.

I have had a look at the websites of the normal suspects and I can't find such parts for sale. Can anyone point me towards a supplier of these thrust washers or do I need to source generic thrust washers of the correct dimensions?

Phone the Distributor Doctor. He must use them to rebuild distributors.

I looked on their website where they have other distributor parts but not thrust washers. I give them a call.
