These old timing lights are supposed to be right up there with the higher dollar units like the MSD 8990 light. Used to have one but have no idea where it went. It's been gone so long that I can't remember if someone borrowed it or what.....

Some lights go out earlier in the rpm range and are 10+ degrees off by 6500. And yeah, not enough pics! Dangit....

That's the light I still use!

I also have one of the older Craftsman lights with the "spring" thingys you put on the spark plug and connect to the light. It still works great, but I use the inductive one 'cause it's easier to use.

Give me some time to get in there.. I have 2 Polaris Utility 4 wheelers back to back that have way to much junk piled as much as 4 ft high on them to move.. Trying to put 2 14x10 sheds back to back to house the 4 wheelers ..mowers and "junk".. Soon as I get them moved I can get to that Craftsman toolbox.. It has all the ole skool stuff in it ..Friend passed before he could get it out...and it has been sittin there untouched next to the old racing tool boxes since 1993. Bet the handles on those snap-ons are rotted off by now..

Yeah..4 ft tall..More like 6 1/2.. Not lookin forward to it..but then again..I am going to make a huge list of "stuff" and if someone wants it..just pay the shipping

There used to be a guy near me that had a shop with the dist-tra-buter machine that we went to. Not sure if he's still there or not.

And Mutt, I know what it's like to not be able to get to stuff lol. I'm still pulling stuff out. I woke up early this morning and decided to clean out my desk and found all kinds of forgotten junk....

At the Mopar dealership where I worked, we had a Sun distributor machine; it was used on every tune-up ever done there for years......worked great! We also had a Sun Engine Analyzer with scope, leakdown tester, engine exhaust analyzer, etc.

A few years ago, the dealership went out of business......and everything in the shop was sold at auction, probably for pennies, but I didn't even go to the auction........I have enough junk already, and I just knew I would probably buy everything in sight! :o They had parts and equipment stashed away all over the place, some of it dating back to the 1930's!! :rolleyes:

I had a chance to get a Sun Distributor machine 2 years ago for $80 I bought a bunch of other stuff from the guy and let the dist machine go to another buyer that invited me to his garage anytime and said I could come by use that dist machine anytime; seems he had its twin that had some issues, the one at this sale worked and looked good but the other buyer claimed it was missing something and his other not so good machine had what this one lacked; he told me of all the model Ts and 40s buicks he had and wanted me to come see some of his "junk" I havent done so yet but I have told a few about the guy... I forget exactly where he said he lives but I remember it aint far from my mom's house....

yeah that one on Ebay... that seller is awful proud of that thing, aint he... that price is more than a lil high

I have a Snap on counselor scope (Snapon bought Sun) here that I bought a while back, aint usin it as much as I thought I might it all works fine but I like the old Sun 1015s better... I would let this scope go for a real reasonable price
