A machinist called me today about a ground lead question for a 57 Tbird distributor... and sent me this pic. He wanted to know if the distributor is missing anything? He said this distributor came to him in pieces, all un-assembled, and he fears he may be missing a ground strap that connects the plate to the body. Obviously this is a Pertronix installation but he wants to be sure all of Ford's internals are correct before he proceeds. I don't know much about the 57 dizzy's - if I recall they may be a one year only "style"? Can some of you guys take a look at this pic and give him some clarification?
