I hope this works. Pictured above is a distributor I have which I believe is for an engine on a John Deere bailer. I have contacted Delco Remy but all they can tell me is that is discontinued and no info is available. I would appreciate it if anyone had information or knowledge for this item. Thanks in advance for any help you can provide me.

Since the two towers are located 90 degrees apart, it is for an engine with a 180 degree (uneven firing) crankshaft.

Probably the most common 180 crank engines that use a distributor are the John Deere tractor engines, called "Johnny Poppers".

That doesn't mean the distributor is for a John Deere, though. I'm not a J. D. expert here.

Trying to find out what engine it was designed for.

Thanks that makes sense, possibly some of the upright two tractors built by John Deere.

Much easier to look it up with the number on the tag(when present) rather than try to identify visually on some things. I can't make the tag number out.

Sorry I didn't notice the box picture. I'll try to look it up.

My references aren't too good for outside the US but looks like it was sold in Canada. Looks like it fits "HD" engine made by Russel-Hipwell (in Canada) around 1949. Engine used to power log boom boats. All I can find easily and might be used in some other application.
