What Jim and I forgot to mention is the clamp is part of tubman's package. The clamp

is die formed especially for the Big Brass condenser...not a recycled do dad.

So Jim.... on our next distributor this winter, can I request the tubman brass condensor in lieu of the napa one? If nobody looks under my hood, which would you prefer?

"GB" - Excuse me for stepping in here, but the big problem with these was determining whether they were reliable. I ran one on my '51 (with a Merc flathead and a Mallory dual point) for a couple of years before I even mentioned them on these boards. I am confidant now that these are as close to "bullet proof" as they can be. I offer a 1 year warranty on these after my experience. How do you know if an item will go 5 years and 50,000 miles unless you have run one? I have 3 years and 20,000 miles on an original (I also have a couple of buddy's who are running them with no problems for almost as long.)

I started building these because a regular condenser from your FLAPS looks hideous hanging off of a vintage "high performance" distributor. Do you need one in a stock configuration? No, but if you hang one off of the side of your stock distributor (points or not) , it's gonna look pretty cool.
