Rare German Bosch Restored Distributor Caps   Price: $30 each shipped
This ad is aimed at the purist or someone wanting an original 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. The center carbon brush and spring were removed and a special special tool has been used with no more than five rotations by hand to clean the interior contacts. Any brushes shorter than 1/4 inch 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. NINETEEN SOLD,THERE'S MORE1

This first batch are original finish

These are the tall caps used on the 113 series distributors and the 009's.

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.
