Hi Bentwood,

Gary Wallace has them. Other vendors like the Filling Station have them too. Gary's website is at: http://www.earlychevyparts.com/

I noticed that the Filling Station's online photo of the pins show that they are indeed rolled pins.

Just in the last few days, I changed the gear on Lurch's distributor (1928 635B) and I used rolled pins.

Cheers, Dean

I have used nails that have the correct OD. The pins are intended to shear if the distributor jams. Otherwise the gear cut into the camshaft can be destroyed. New cams are made with unobtainium. I have found a few distributor gear pins nearly sheared. Probably don't really want to know how that happened.

Instead of a nail, use the end of an aluminum pop rivet. That will shear faster than a roll pin if anything jams up.

I've purchased nails with the appropriate OD. If the converter jams, the pins are designed to shear. Otherwise, the camshaft gear cut into it may be ruined.For more woodwork here Unobtainium is used in the manufacture of new cams. A couple distributor gear pins were nearly severed, which I discovered. You probably don't care about how that occurred.
