Delco Distributor Parts

I have never actually used a Distributor cap out of one of these great looking Delco containers.


I have used countless numbers of these tune up kits however! This kit fits GM Delco Distributors from 1957-1973 V8 motor applications.


Most people who turned their own wrenches just kept one of these in the garage for the next tune up or to rescue a friend who had need of one in a hurry for a late night auto repair. They fit pretty much everything that was not Ford or Foreign!

The Distributor cap was often the cause (or when dried the cure) to a stalled Chevy sitting mid-puddle on a rainy day. Wade out there, pop the hood, pull the cap and dry the rotor very gently and then the cap insides, re-apply and 9 times out of 10 off you go again!

    I’ve heard of distributor caps but wouldn’t know one if I tripped over it. I’ll just call my favourite mechanic to fix anything auto related. LOL Great photos!
