Unless noted, the Lucas kits above fit the indicated distributor equipped with or without vacuum advance.

Note 1.  There are two distributor shafts found in 43D4, 45D4, 43D6, and 45D6 distributors.  The more common shaft has a longer points cam than the relatively rare shaft with a short cam.  The Ignitors in the list above will only work in distributors that have the longer points cam.  To determine which you have measure the distance between the top of the distributor shaft and the top edge of the points cam.  If it is about .420" you have the long cam and the Ignitors will work properly.  If the dimension is about .525" you have the short cam and the Ignitors will not work.
