Distributor housings

Almost forgot,
I am still waiting on a quote from a local
CNC shop for the new billet aluminum housings.
The guy promised me on friday to have a definite price.
All orders have to be prepaid since we talking about a few hundred dollars per piece. Also I had a few guys that forgot to pay me and have a hard time to get a hold of.

Which Distributor would this be for? I'd be interested in one for my Star.

Re: Distributor housings

If this is the casting that bolts to the back of the generator and holds the distributor, I need one. Just let me know the price! Dave--sbend@evansinet.com

Re: Distributor housings

Do you have the clips to hold the distributor cap on? I purchased one of John Baraldi's billet aluminum housings several years ago in Hershey for the 1922 Durant but now I am unable to find any clips that are of the correct length. The clips fasten on will a roll pin at the bottom of the housing and are 1 5/8" long . Wondered what length your clips are if you supply them.
Also any progress on the headlight clips?

Re: Distributor housings

Hi Franz,
If the housing you refer to fits a 1929 Rugby D40, Would be interested in price. My current one fits on the back of the generator with the distibutor cliped
in. As a new Club member Ifeel this form line is great. Looking forward to a reply.
