We have two Allis G’s, but this week Dad has had
issues with what I’ll call #1. Drove it out of barn on
Sat, and by Monday it wouldn’t run. After a through
process of elimination, swapping parts between #1
& #2, only way he got #1 to run was with the
distributor from #2. BUT #2 will run with the
distributor from #1.
Don’t really matter as there both running, but don’t
make much sense, any ideas?

Many times the points will corrode just sitting around. Scrape both surfaces of the points.

if the only thing done was a swap, possibly corrosion/oxidization was enough to cause loss of ground between the distributor and block in #1. The corrosion would have been disturbed by swapping the distributors around and the ground would have been re-established. Just a thought.

As Jim said lose of ground in the distributor so swapping them moved things and cleaned things a bit
