Dear Sir

I own a Correct Craft water ski boat 1986 with a Ford V8 engine 351/4 240 HP. The ignition distributor is from Prestolite. The contact points for the distributor are worn out and I am trying to find out where I can buy replacements. Could you tell me if these are available through your company?

Best regards
Robert Blanc

HI,
I found what appears to be a match for distributo cap, rotor, points and condensor at Mason Marine. Check out their website.

Look for tune up parts and it shows pictures of the parts to help you identify them. Lots of cross reference numbers too. Great place to start a search. Good website.

Indmar's website is terrible. They are pure show & marketing with no sense of customer service. They dump that responsibility on their distribution dealers.

I have a 1984 Comander Marine 351 Ford and NAPA Auto Parts has been able to get me replacement parts. Pertronix makes a replacement distributer that is electronic no points.

I'm afraid not, as we sold that part of our business to Ametek in 2000. Latest contact information we have is in the post about yours.

I hope they can help.

If your 454 is a gen IV earlier than 1991, you are using the same distributor for left hand or reverse as the gear driven engines cam still turns the same way as a std. engine.

It's possible we may have something that will work, or will be able to point you in the right direction. Any chance of getting any additional information, or even a photograph of the unit?

Hello
I am converting a 4 Cly. Volvo marnine engine over from points to electronic ignition. It says in the directions that if the engine has a Balast resister to wire it acording to a certain way. I am not sure if this boat has a resister in it, I am unble to see it in the wiring. Is there a way to make sure or not?

Thanks

The best way to determine if you have a resistor is to trace the circuit and see if you can find it.

My question is, which direction should the vent hole on the bottom of the distributor be pointed? Toward the back of the engine or to the Front of the motor? And is it posible to be put wrong?

i think it wud b better for u to contact a provider who specialises in replacements...he wud b in a better position to help u...

I have a site on Ebay gmanc8791 I also have most tune up parts for distributors that Amatek does not handle.For information Email gmanc8791@aol.com

I have found that most NAPA auto supply houses will stock or can order the parts for you. Look them up online to see if you have one locally. Good Luck!!
