There is only one canister that will physically and mechanically work with that distributor. It's the small saucer shaped 204 canister. As above you can salvage a good one from either a 111 M or N cor ...

The O P is working with a convertible. The stock distributor would have been a VJU 4 BR 8 with vacuum advance. This distributor has the same mechanical advance as the 019 with the added bonus of vac ...

The "019" typically sells at a premium price, better to source a VJ 4 BR 8.

What you have there is a Garbe Lahmeyer distributor not Bosch. They were originally installed on Buses starting in 1955 with a mechanical advance, thus the 211 part numbers all over it. It wa used spo ...

Sometimes new points have a corrosion preventive oil applied at the factory that dries out and needs to be removed before the spark from one contact to the other is clean.

I've found that 9 in 10 DVDA distributors have a non working retard vacuum canister. About 5 out of 10 have a non working advance. About 4 out of 10 have worn out points plates. About 6 in 10 have wor ...

Early 30 Pict 1's do not have the fuel enrichment circuit originally. You are looking for a 113 905 205 K distributor as the match.

My Delco Remy for1953 was a simple set screw.

The starter rebuild parts for the Garbe Lahmeyer are all over the classifieds as "VW" branded parts- very common.

I'm not so sure the "034" is coveted as much as it is the most common due to it being reproduced en masse- with varying degrees in terms of quality.
