Re: proper coil/distributor combination for '39

Thank you Bubba. I'll be looking for a correct coil and I assume a factory one would be the best. Do you sell them or should I just buy one from a restoration parts supplier?

Re: proper coil/distributor combination for '39

There is a condenser on top of the distributor that I assume is supposed to be there?? How would I check to determine if the coil or condenser is bad when hot?

Re: Good experience with Joblot Automotive in Queens, NY

Agreed, Joblot is the best. I'm restoring a '48 F4 and they have all of those big truck parts that most places don't stock. Even bought a set of NOS rear brake shoes from them!
