FWIW, both nuts on the accelerator cable are supposed to be on the left side. They are supposed to work as jam nuts, to keep from coming off.

Re: Electronic ignition distributor question

I thank you all very much for your answers. I begin to understand what are those holes for...most probably, on other cars using the same castings, maybe those holes get threaded and used to fix Something. Or maybe they are drain holes...but to drain what??? I've asked that question at the beginning ...

Re: Electronic ignition distributor question

I thank you both for your "try" on answering... :| I just hope someone will jump in and tell me what is the real design purpose of those two holes. I'm really not conviced that the Reason is to let the Inside building pressure of the distributor to escape...does not make sense to me… Anyway, let see...

Re: 1972 Fiat Spider

Hello there, great car by the way it seems to go pretty well :) If I may ask a small technical question...When you replaced the shocks and springs, I guess you replaced also the tab bushings...did you use polyurethane bushings or standard rubber bushings?
