Default 1111480 distributor stamping

Real or no? The characters all appear correct to me but then again I don't have the service time most of you folks have. Thanks in advance!

I would say the first dist. is a restamp, if you look at the 4 the corners they are not correct.

Im not sure of the answer but I have had a couple of dist for my Z and they all have had a rectangular indentation around the part number and not really the date. I had a Jan 70 i have a may 70 (which I dont have a photo of right now), and just tried to by a march 70 (dang thats the one I need) all looked the same, they all had the same lathe type markings. I have noticed that the stampings do not all sit in the same location vertical to the housing,. Here is what they looked like (sorry none with 4s in them).



I wonder why some have the pronounced groves and some dont.

Here's a pic of one that was emailed to me a few weeks ago. Suspicious of it, with the faint "11" in the 80 area, the "4" corners, and the date spacing is different than another 9C4 I've seen. Thought it was too low on the housing until I read Carl's post above.

looks like a restamp to me Dave. Somebody purposely tried to punch the 4 in 3 places.

The first and third 480 listed look like lousy restamps.

Best way to find out if the distributer is real is take any points distributor from a '69 - '70 and a micrometer and measure the outer circumfrence of both housings. They should be exactly the same. Most of the housing on the really good re-stamps have been turned down and the lines pit back on the housing before the stamping.
