  • I'm looking for part# 8n 6276,the thrust spring for a front distributor motor.
    It's a flat spring with tabs that sits in front of the canshaft gear.
    Thanks for any help.

  • Found this one
  • I've never done business with these folks so cannot recommend them but they say they have them.

  • According to Messick's, the part has been discontinued which may mean that you need to cannibalize another cam for one:

    Usually ships in 3-7 business days
    Product replaces 86511580
    This product has been discontinued.

  • Skunk-
    What happened to the one that was on there? I do not see a repro listed with Denny Carpenter nor STEINERS so probably won't find a replacement. They do offer a new camshaft gear. Note 8N is a bolt-on type, p/n 91A-6256-A.
