    Corvette Distributor Rebuild - Rebuilding The Tach-Drive Distributor

    We restore performance in a Delco-Remy "window cap" distributorThe postwar General Motors OHV V-8s were difficult to tune. Ignition distributors mounted at the firewall end of the engine, and the breaker points and condenser were difficult to replace. In the late '40s and 1950s, professionals turned to distributor strobe machines and worked on the ignition with the distributor removed from the engine.inline_mediumwraptextrightDelco-Remy's window cap distributor was an engineering breakthrough. A unique breaker point design allows point adjustment through the cap's window. This can be done with the engine running, a timesaving, fine tuning approach.

    Have one of these in our '74 equipped with an Accel dual point setup. Added a 90 degree fitting to straighten out the cable run as things are kind of tight. Good information!
