Very nice  :ThumbsUp:  :ThumbsUp:  You may find a some clearance between the rotor and the fixed electrodes to be better. A small additional spark gap won't be a problem. Filling the distributor with brass dust can cause flashovers.

Roger the gap is ca. 0.15mm
And of course the part will be cleaned before service

I had slightly less clearance than planned in this distributor which resulted in a few unwanted sparks.
