Reply To: 52merc V8 distributor

Check with C&G Early Ford Parts. They show rebuilt distributors for your ’52 on their website. I have ordered parts from them in the past with great results. They are in Escondido, CA. They can answer your question regarding interchange. I see no reason why the Ford would not be the same as a Merc. I think they would also rebuild your distributor for you or have the parts to do so.
