When all else fails, go back to the beginning and look at basics. Following that advise I took a minute and checked the engine SN only to find out that it is a TR4 engine. Must have been changed before my time years ago. Anyway that at least explains why it has a D25 distributor. Still no idea why the unusual distributor number. I did clean off the vacuum advance and found the part # 54411233 and advance numbers 5-11-7. TRF has a part with the same numbers but a different part # for a TR distributor. Now my dilemma.
Do I purchase the unit, roughly $70, purchase a brand new distributor from them for roughly $100 (sure it is a knock off of unknown quality), or pick up the correct rebuilt distributor for around $200.
Thanks for the inputs so far.
