I was about to order an ingitor II for my 66 inline 6 with 200 cid engine when I noticed that there are two flavours -- one for solid shaft distributors, one for hollow. I feel dumb...how do I know which one I have? I replaced the distributor last year and don't recall being asked which one I wanted.

Is there an easy way to tell?


Thanks!

cut it in half?

No seriously... if its hollow, I would think you could pull it, stick something up the oil pump shaft hole, and it should keep going all the way up. But I have never messed with I6 dizzy's before.

Since in many of these classics the engine might have been changed over the years, pull off the rotor & look at the top of the distributor shaft; if it is solid & "D" shaped, its a solid shaft.
If it has a slot and a hole in the middle of the shaft its a hollow shaft.
