1926 Cadillac V8 Distributor needed!

Recommended Posts

An elderly freind in the car lcub has a really nice aluminum-bodied 1926 Cadillac V8 coupe that is in dire need of a distributor. He has had the car for close to ten years, and that is all that is keeping it from running. Does anyone out there have a rebuildable 1926 Cadillac Delco distributor? Or know of a way to substitute something else? He's in his upper eighties now and in poor helath - I'd like to see him get it running before it's too late. I've had no luck walking Hershey the past few years.

These units are part of G.M.'s early "pot metal" experiments. The chances of finding a useable original is slim. Someone is probably casting replacements; most likely in brass, but I don't know off hand who. 1926 and 1927 will probably fit {model 314} ; there may be slight differences and resulting different part numbers, but these two years are the same basic design. Do you need the entire distributor or just the pot metal top housing? Greg in Canada
