Default Brass "Trash Can" condensers

City: Pequot lakes
State: MN
Price: 50

We have for sale a modern version of the iconic "Trash Can" condenser that was used on just about all of the vintage high performance points ignition system. They serve as a functional replacement for the long unavailable originals. These are constructed using modern severe duty capacitors housed in a rugged all brass case. They far exceed the performance and durability of the originals. It is common knowledge that most currently available condensers are foreign made and unreliable. We have been selling these for over three years and have yet to have a single reported failure. They are offered with a one year replacement or money back guarantee. These mount externally on the distributor (the place of the original condenser is taken by the second set of points). and come with a proper "P" clamp for mounting and a 2 1/4" lead made of black fabric covered 10 gauge copper wire with the proper vintage flag terminals. These are rated at .220 micro-farads, which is correct for most dual coil ignitions and single point conventional ignitions. They also work very well with regular dual point distributors. There may be slightly accelerated point wear, but it all depends on the individual setup and coil.

These may also be used on stock single point, single coil systems by simply mounting them on the outside of the distributor and running the lead to the input terminal. They have the advantage of being much more reliable than currently available off-shore condensers, and they give your distributor "the look" of a high-performance ignition.

This product was developed for my own personal use and are all hand fabricated. Since the originals are no longer available, I have been requested to produce a few more and make them available to he general public. Because of the unavailability of good originals, demand has been quite substantial for these' so I have made another run of 10 units.
