  • Distributor cap - delco window type

    Two or three years ago I picked up an NOS delco window type distributor off EBay. It didn't come with a cap. Now I'm getting ready to use it on a rebuilt 289. Once I saw a distributor cap in a Hawk that had the leads coming out of the side of the cap instead of out of the top. Sort of like a pin wheel. I sure liked that better. Does anybody know if a cap like that is made for the delco window type, and if so part number and supplier? thanks -

    check summit or jeg's, the window was used on just about everything GM right up until the intro of electronic ignition in the 70's. Sounds like an aftermarket part for sure.

    edit: I couldn't find it, but this is cool (if extraneous)

        May be a GM HEI electronic ignition cap you're thinking of?

          I think I want one of those, too! It is pretty nifty how it feeds the wires out. Thing is, it prolly is designed strictly for engines which have the 18436572 firing order, and clockwise rotation.

            Nate, I used to sell those in the jobber store way back in the early seventies.
            Cal-Custom used to make them (re-package them?)..
            They were pretty crummy electrical wise, and would carbon track real fast.
            (Maybe no worse that a regular cap, but you could see it, especially at night![:0])

              Thanks to all for the input. That one from Summit looks like it will fit the bill. With the regular type cap there is always one wire that goes right over another one and it makes me worry about the connection (like I don't have enough worry about driving a 45 year old car)
