Is there anyone out there who knows for a source of two good Delco distributor caps for a V12 Liberty or information of someone reproducing them.
The cap has an integral coil but it should be possible to mount a separate one adjacent to the engine. The bakelite material (or similar) seems to shrink by 80 years of age and the cap cracks around the coil. Any help, and knowledge of other Liberty spares, gratefully received.

I just received the following e-mail:



We will be manufacturing new distributor caps and rotors for Liberty V-12 engines. These will be available in fall 2005.
