Hi, To avoid any confusion, the distributor turns clockwise when viewed from the DRIVE end, so when viewed from the points end the rotation is anticlockwise. The Lucas leaflet for all the electrical equipment on the 1950 Flying Squirrel states the following:-

Points gap .010″ to .012″

Contact breaker spring tension 20 to 24 ounces measured at contacts.

Condenser capacity .18 to .23 microfarads.

Centrifugal advance commences at 300-500 distributor rpm, with maximum advance of 17 to 20 degrees at 2900 rpm.

The rotor arm part number 400051 shown in a previous posting is correct. I hope this will clarify things !!
