MG MGA - Pandora's Box Opened

Ok now I've "f" it up.

I tried to do the aluminum buildup my self, which didn't take.

Off to the welder for a try....for $20 what the heck.

So I seemed to to have melted something inside the dizzy.

Based on a complete disassembly (yes, yes day late, dollar short) and the shop manual it appears there was a spacer between the body of the distributor and the last plate on the shaft (under the counterweights.

What do we know about that part? Moss doesn't appear to sell a replacement.

Here are the pertinant numbers from the distributor

40510 H


160 (made in January 1960)
