The gears are the same for all 20V distributor engines.  Of the 125 gears
produced for the group purchase, about half were sold to 89 chassis 20V
owners.  Although the distributors have different part numbers they are
interchangeable, BTDT, only the rotor having a narrower tip on the 3B than
that of the 7A.
