You want a late 60's 318 cond. The Standard Blue Streak # is AL111X. I talked to Std. rep. and they said it runs 0.2-0.34 mF. And like I said, I have had same one for 15 yrs.
Well, I admit I don't understand mf. And will have to check which condenser I have now that has run perfectly for 8 years.
But when I first got my 46, 42guy (Richard) nursed me thru carb and dizzy problems. That is when I moved the condenser up to where it is easy to get to. 8000 miles on it and run every other day on short and long trips. He is a great guy with years of flathead racing and driving and hope to get up to visit him soon.
