Default Circuit Breaker cam 32542-70TA and 32542-70

What is the difference between 32542-70TA and 32542-70.

In other words it’s the letter T that does not show up in any of my OEM parts books.

Thanks much.

Harry

PS

Is Jan Willem Boom in The Netherlands using T for Taiwan????

If your question is specific to the "T" version...... all I can say is..... I'm not at all familiar with the "T" version. If you have a verified "T" version, please post a pic. I'd like to see it.

32542-70 is a piece of junk.

Otherwise, if it helps, some past discussions on 32542-70A vs 32542-70 can be found here:

Thanks Doc for your reply.
I have read and understand the difference between 70 to 72A.
Excellent write up.

I am installing the 72A as part of a points kit on one of my 79 IH’s.
Later I’m going to do the same thing on my second 79.

I wanted to order a few back ups of the 72A.

Here is JP Cycles link of the 72TA

https://www.jpcycles.com/product/380...it-breaker-cam

It also shows up on Amazon.

Thanks again for your reply. Much appreciated.

Cheers

Harry

In a parts suppression list, 32542-70A - TIMER CAM - is said to be replaced by 32542-70TA...

So that number would appear to be a valid part number... Although it seems not to appear in any parts catalogs... Perhaps only available as the Eagle Iron accessory version (from Taiwan)...


The three Boon listings are 32542-70A, R 32542-70A & 32542-70TA

https://www.jwboon.com/index2.php?co...mber_32542-70A

https://www.jwboon.com/index2.php?co...ber_R32542-70A

https://www.jwboon.com/index2.php?co...ber_32542-70TA


The first two are listed as NON-TEFLON, which leads me to believe that the -70TA is the one WITH TEFLON...

I just ordered two of them via Amazon.
About 17 bucks a piece.

Like the ol’ saying goes:

Ye puts yer money down and takes yer chances. Ha ha.

Meanwhile guys, thanks so much for the replies.
It is greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Harry

The T stands for Taiwan. Almost all Eagle Iron parts have either the T or TA suffix, and many current "Genuine H-D" parts have the T suffix, T meaning it's a Taiwan manufactured part.
