Rare German Bosch Refurbished Distributor Caps   Price: $30 shipped
This ad is aimed at the purist or someone wanting a cap to install at shows.

After more than fifteen years of restoring distributors I have filled my large box of caps to overflowing. any caps that were cracked or broken were discarded long ago. I have sorted them again and any caps that were severely weathered or had putty or duct tape residue were discarded. Th e center carbon brush and spring were removed and a special precision tool has been used to clean the interior contacts using no more than five rotations by hand. Any brushes shorter than 1/4 inche long were replaced. Each post in the top was also cleaned with a special wire brush. Caps in need of a new coat of acrylic lacquer have been resprayed those with good original finishes were left as is.

This first batch are original finish caps. NINE SOLD, THERE'S MORE!

These caps are for the short cap 111 series distributors Beetle and Bus. Some are black some are dark brown.

All distributors are completely disassembled,missing parts replaced and all parts thuroughly cleaned with non-toxic solvents. Cast iron bodies are painted with semi-gloss black engine paint. Units are reshimmed including new oil seals. Ground wires are checked using a VOM, points cams are checked for scratches and lightly polished. All moving parts are lubricated and Bosch grease is applied to the points cam. Each distributor is carefully reassembled and vacuum cans are tested using my restored 1947 Sun MSD distributor machine.

I have a limited supply of steel vacuum lines and dust covers. If you would like one request it at time of sale. They are $15 each.
