Which distributor vacuum advance

Post #1 by twodogs » Tue Sep 15, 2020 12:09 pm

Hi all. I have a '74 Bronco with a 200 ci inline six engine. My distributor vacuum advance is leaking quite a bit and I would like to find a new replacement. So far I've had zero luck in locating one. My distributor is marked, "Motorcraft D3BF-12127-CA." I can easily find one for a 302, but have struck out completely on one for my 200. Thank you for any help you can provide!

You would be better to upgrade to a DS11 or a HEI distributor. Bill

Hi, I see you got your answer on the classic bronco site. I find many of the parts I need at my local parts stores. I try napa and advance on line. They often have what I need in stock. It is good to see you are making progress with your Bronco. I would recommend two reference books: the Ford Falcon Performance Handbook from Vintage Inline, and a Chilton's Manual. Good luck
