Quote from A Renaissance of Classic Auto Parts Brands :
Regarding the famed brand 'King', (founded in 1911), Deke Williams from California, purchased the rights to the brand after realizing that without the mechanical distributors, even the most skilled mechanic can only guess time accuracy at its best. Subsequently, his purchase revived this 100–year–old classic brand by creating a contemporary version of the original distributor from the brand. The name of the brand has changed slightly too⁏ it‘s now known as King Electronics. The new model of the distributor is called the D16 and facilitates the combination of both contemporary and mechanical elements whilst being able to turn a distributor to up to 11,000 rpm.
For those familiar with the era of the ’50s and ′60s, you might be aware that dissimilar to the cars of today. Vehicles of these eras weren‵t built with computers to help the mechanism of the ignition process⁏ they implemented a mechanical distributor instead. The distributor‵s key purpose is to locate the most accurate ignition timing for the vehicle in order to exploit the fastest speed and effectiveness.
