Same question, different timer.
Both housings are Big Twin; Note the position of the base flanges, and difference in advance arcs. One with shaft is common timer; What model had the control wire in a different place?

Short shaft Chris.

That's one of my questions to Cotten. We installed this timer into a 45. Just won't work. Can't get it close enough to time it. Not even close enough to fire it up. I don't have enough gear cover assortment, K, BT, 45, to get a better idea. I'm thinkin the gear cover holds the story. Pa

Hello i see this post is a little dated but where did that base go to??? i have the base on one to and it does run on mine i just have problems with starting but when it does run it stays on, so might be a manifold leak or the valves not shure yet,Iam in Indiana and the weather starts to act up :) so have to wait a little to look at that
