About a duraspark distributor reluctor

Hi there all, Iím working on a spare diz project and would like to find a spare reluctor or two. Does anyone have the ford part number or any part number for a ford 6 duraspark reluctor?...a DISTRIBUTOR reluctor.

I'm not sure if those are available separately. At least I've never seen them. Unlike, say, the distributor gear, they're not a "wear part", so there's no reason to ever replace them (and as such no reason to make replacements).

Thanks for the reply AB..Yes they DO make then separatley. Since they have to be removed for fine truning the dist cam advance, i have had quite a few off and re-used. I happen to be modifying a diz of mine and wanted a few spare ones. I see ebay has a few that originally came in a 70's maverisk six. Anyway..thanks for the response. I prefer stock Ford distributors, and parts ofr them are getting harder to find..my choice..In this case Im using that ford diz in another project that is not quite a stock application...

Others in another forum have reminded me that this reluctor is used in the smaller Ford sixes of the 70's as well so it seems to be available for service in other distributors.

I went through this about 1 year ago when mine went out. Darn thing only lasted forty years. Well, after a lot of research, and being warned about the 'made in China' ones lasting one year, I bought NOS one on ebay. I took great comfort in seeing Motorcraft on the box.
