Thank you Kultulz and Theo.
In the third picture, my other 59 430 has a curved arm ....would this be a replacement unit?
I have not looked at the part number yet...Maybe a distributor out of a 462 motor?

There was mixed production during that period. The straight arm is early design, the bent arm later design. That is why the DIST I.D. NO. is so important in ordering the correct service parts.
