      Thanks
      Too bad they don't produce them in the original "Tan" color.

            Good to see Taylor has them available. Yes, brass contacts and made in the US of A as well. None available for the Prestolite dual points that I can see.

              Will these fit the Mopar Performance electronic ignition conversion kit from Mancini Racing? If not, who sells a replacement cap & rotor for this?

                Did not know that I have to see what series I used to run. I just keep away from them because hard parts are really hard to find.

                  Yes sir they run the long CHEBBY points unlike mine which run the shorter Ford style !
                  One good thing about unit u mentioned was dwell adjustment on both sides externally.

                  Juz' sayin but "tan" is not a "color". The tan is a result of the material used, which is supposed to be a better quality so far as electrical characteristics (alkyd) than bakelite

                  Tan, blue, grey, not sure what / if the material difference is. I think the red MSD caps are a different material

                    Those Red msd caps are UGLY !!
                    Back before I learned properly
                    I had a Pro Billet in a Stroker Amc 401 and purchased a black cap !!!
                    Red is just ugly unless on a firetruck

                    Sorry to see Msd sale out and take production over to China !
                    A good friends brother has been there over 25 years in TX and new owners pulled dyno machines out and made other negative changes #
                    Im strictly buying old US stock and US made 7AL2 units etc which can be used with my dualpoint set ups.

                    What we need are GLASS caps!! LOL

                    (Actually that is not true, even glass, or any other material, ceramic or plastic, can contain impurities that make the material less able to be an effective insulator/ dielectric. During WWII there were some ceramic insulators that caused trouble at RF frequencies because of the materials in the "mud" of which they were made)

                    I do know at one time "somebody" made clear plastic caps for some distributors
