      Special Interest Autos in Rowlett, Texas rebuilds vacuum advances. They do a good job, and do them "show quality" if necessary. I sent him mine, and he said they didn't have a rebuilt, but had a new one that would adapt. He sent it to me, and I cannot tell the difference between the two. Works great. His Phone/Fax: 1-800-634-2469 (US only). E-mail is

        Joe: The older NAPA Echlin number for that vacuum advance is VC395.

        You might call NAPA and see if they can supply one, or have a more current interchange number. BP
        We've got to quit saying, "How stupid can you be?" Too many people are taking it as a challenge.

          Play with (raise) the initial and the mechanical advance a little.
          I haven't used a vacuum advance canester for years..

            Did you find a vacuum advance at NAPA? I had them research a vacuum advance for a Delco, and they could not find one. Just wondering how you did with your search.
