Hello,

Does anyone know of a person that reproduces the black Bakelite insulator that brings power into the distributor. Mine looks like it should be replaced. I couldn't find a replacement via Max anyone else know of a replacement option?

37 or 38 Delco for 115

Thanks

James

If I remember right,Chevrolet&Pontiac in the approximate years used the same part in their distributors. Try Chevrolet parts dealers who have parts for 30's cars.

The Delco number is 1853625 and was used by Buick, Cadillac, Oldsmobile and Pontiac from the mid 30's to the early 50's
