I found and purchased a spare distributor and these are the "as found" pics before taking it apart to clean and repair or rebuild.

Internals look similar to 35 Auburn non supercharged.

Hello Gary Parsons : From the looks of the Auto-Lite tag on the distributor it may be an IGP-4006 which is correct for 1936/37 Cord Model 810/812 w/o supercharger. This would have an eight lobe cam and single breaker. Uses a condenser IG-2671. The supercharged FC engine uses Auto-Lite distributor IGH-4028 with double breaker points and a 4 lobe cam.

It is Mike except that the fly-weights are different as it turns clockwise. I once mistakenly put one in a 851 and it wouldn't trun over 1500 RPM.
I have a couple of them.

I recently experimented with a L-29 dist. {counterclockwise] and a identical Studebaker dist. that rotated clock wise. The only difference between the two was the cam piece cam lobes in relation to the rotor location. If I reversed the weight location it would have worked as a L-29 dist. except for the rotor location. I experiment with a L-29 dist. and put the weights on wrong and got advance both ways believe it or not. This was all done on a Sun machine. Did not try it on the car.

This is an email exchange I had with a highly skilled distributor guy I know out east.
Hi Tom:
I have a couple distributors from a non-supercharged Cord IGP 4006 that runs CW
Can you change the weights to advance CCW for an Auburn IGP4002 ?
All the specs are the same except for the rotation according to my old Allen book

Hi Curt,
Hope all is well with you.
In a nutshell, even if I could change the counterweight's direction, you would have the issue of the point's cam not turning in the proper direction.
Hope this helps.
Regards,
Tom
