Karl, thanks, but I really wanted to know the part numbers of those condensers, especially the Mallory one. Regards, Kevin.

Update on this thread. "Cape Man" and I talked last evening, it seems the culprit was actually the ignition switch! The switch was replaced and after various driving situations with no further issues it seems to have cured that ailment. Now the brakes; master cylinder failure, rear wheel cylinder leaking is a whole different story, those have also been repaired and so far so good. I just wanted to let everyone know the final solution and thank everyone for the help.

Hard to imagine how the ignition switch could be related to heat?? A short that failed when after being on for a while that diminished when turned off and allowed to cool down??? New one on me and hope the fix is permanent!

Glad its running but agree I never heard of an ignition switch that consistently waited waited till engine warm to quit running. Usually first bump did it. I do agree common issue usually is the condenser or coil.

I know ill get negative comments but JMO onthe condenser/coil prob, as long as ur not an originalist, condenser and points R eliminated & very reliable w a quality electronic distributor & r available as replacement for a '47 AB engine. Also allows for elimination of old style coil and uses a modern external V8 coil 6 or 12 volt replacement also very reliable if a quality Mfgr. https://www.summitracing.com/parts/m...yABEgJ8a_D_BwE

It seemed that the car ran for awhile and perhaps it was a bump or a hill or whatever that made the ignition switch act up. Unless it was something severe it was a coincidence that as soon as it seemed to get warmed up and running the issue happened, the car never got far from home. I had the same reaction as most of you. The standard parts were changed thinking those same old issues and it kept happening, fortunately he kept checking and finally found the culprit..... and it was ignition!!!!
