I have a question for 440 powered automatic Daytonas out there.
Does your distributor have the part number 2875758 stamped into the housing or is it blank?
Does your distributor have the tag with the 2875758 part number?
Or both?
I would like for you to provide pictures in your replies.
Thanks! MJ

I seem to remember the number stamped into the casting on one of my single points. Might have been on Disco.... Not sure if it was on a 69 or on a 70 440. Two of those cars are sold and gone - but I have one left to check. I'll have a look.

Thanks for the replies so far!
Jim I hope the one you have left will help me out.
I have a distributor that I want to get rebuilt but I want to make sure it's correct first?

I am pretty sure by this time frame tags only, but understand your desire.  The only distinguishing difference for your rebuild will be the casting date inside the housing.  Does it meet your build date.  No one will ever see it unless you disassemble the distributor, but the casting date is inside of the housing.

John,
For WIW my 4-speed 440 Daytona distributor has nothing marked on the outside-just a tag. Do you want a picture of that? I can get to the shop tonight maybe and get it, but it is a 4-speed not automatic.

The 4-speed would be different than the auto. The 4speed would be a dual-point Prestolite whereas the auto would be a single point Chrysler distributor.

Dragon Slayer,
 Thanks for your information about the casting number!
My distributor is partially disassembled and I have taken a picture of the casting date.
It shows a 69 with 3 of the month boxes with pimples in them.
So that tells me the distributor housing was cast some time in March of 1969.
The assembly date would follow that and be right in line for an early June Built Daytona!
Thanks! MJ

Bob,
 I would like a picture of your tag even though it's a 4 speed to see what an original tag would look like?

Is the 89 just the number 68 upside down ?

Hi Folks,                     02 November 2020

Hope we're not intruding on this thread; we have a Chrysler dual point distributor that appears old, has a tag stamped as Follows:

CHRYSLER 2875140

IBS-4014A 42 8

It also has an oil "cup" with a spring loaded flap top. Hope this description is understandable. Haven't seen one of these oil systems since the early to mid 50's.

Googled 2875140 and it came back 68-69 426, 440 dual point distributor.

Googled IBS-401A 42 8, which resulted in "Irritable Bowel Syndrome." Not exactly what we wanted to read about.

This distributor appears old and well used. None of our Hemi's or 440 had (Cuda is Gone) or have many miles on them. Not enough for their distributors to look as used as this one appears to be.

We're unsure of where this distributor came from. Someone may have given it to us (highly unlikely) or the possibility that it came from our 75 W200 4X4 440 ci Power Wagon, which is gone. Don't remember replacing the distributor in it.

We are not sure what it really is for or where it came from. One odd thing is the ground wire for the points is red and is cloth covered, something one might see in wiring from the 50's.

Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Best Always,

68-69 426 Hemi built 42 week of 68, so good for a 69 Hemi car.

Hi Dragon Slayer,                  02 November 2020

Thanks for the info. Plan to visit the person we sold the 440 W200 to. Want to look at the distributor to see if it could have come from it. One last possibility we didn't mention, it may have been in the trunk of the Daytona when we bought her 48 years ago. At that time she had a Mallory distributor installed.

Thanks Again.

Best Always,

Back Again Folks,                         06 November 2020

Found another distributor in my parts stash. Did a Google Search on the following:

   Chrysler 2875987

   IBS - 4017B  419


What little info I can find indicates 70 E Body Hemi / 440 - 6,  4 Spd   Mfg 41st week of 1969. This distributor may account for my not finding the second mechanical advance racing distributor I had. It probably went with the Cuda.

Any help you can supply will be much appreciated. Thank you in (mech) advance.

Best Always,

Bob,
 Thanks for the pictures of your distributors!
It looks like the HEMI and 4 speed Daytonas both have dual point distributors.
So I am still looking for someone with a 440 automatic Daytona that has a single point distributor to send me pictures.
While I'm at it congrats on finding that HEMI Daytona broadcast sheet! WOW!
