The weights and springs are universal. You can just turn the weights over if needed. I'm sure that if there is a mechanical limiter in the set up and has a bushing it doesn't care which way the shaft turns.

Back in stock and ready to rock!

Same price as 2-1/2 years ago. How's that for an inflation fighter?

Buick, Cadillac, & Chevrolet (8 cylinders) turn clockwise. Oldsmobile & Pontiac turn counterclockwise.

These distributors are proving to be very reliable. Been running one in my own personal car for four years now without a hiccup.

In stock, ready to ship.

All GM engines don't turn the same direction so they designed the advance mechanism to work either way but in order to do so you have to flip over the cam that's in the center of the advance unit. If you have it the wrong direction it will give you a terrible super long advance curve. There are charts on line that show what curves are produced by using different combinations of GM weights and cams. Its always a good idea to grab the GM parts if possible because they are superior to any of the cheap-o aftermarket ones.
