Note 1.  There are two distributor shafts found in 45D4 distributors.  The more common shaft has a longer points cam than the relatively rare shaft with a short cam.  Remove the rotor and measure the distance from the top of the distributor shaft to the top of the points cam.  A dimension of about .420" indicates the shaft with the longer points cam.  Distributors with this shaft will take the Ignitors indicated in the table above.  A dimension of about .525" indicates the short points cam.  The Ignitors will not work in distributors with this shaft.
