Secret tip-

The VJU4BR8 (0 231 115 040 is the alternate/later model number) is identical mechanically to the "019" with an added vacuum advance can. It is adjustable for both total advance, as well as sensitivity. It is a killer way to go with kadrons, and is a period correct part.

In fact even if the hose for the vacuum advance is unplugged the vju4br8 will work according. It's mechanical advance curve is sufficient. Cool looking engine. But I would route the breather hose at the back of the fan shroud to free the engine bay from too crowded. IMO.

This picture was taken about a month after I started my battle with Kadrons, and about 5 minutes before I decided to go with something else. Still, I love the look and the performance was pretty good, but spark plug, exhaust and A/F readings coupled with dripping throttle shafts on new carbs killed the relationship. Who knows--I might come back to them in the future.
