I am having fits finding out where I can get paints and cone. for this VW Dist. I appears to be a Dist from a late 50s Bus. Any help would be appreciated.

Cary,
I am using a 009 VW dist. Also, strongly suggest adding a separate ground wire attached to the Dist. body going to a good ground return. Because the VW and possibly other Distributors fit loose where they rotate (Advance/retard)...sometimes there is not a good ground return which will cause a "Miss". The ground wire can be small....AWG 16 which will work great and is very flexible. Should be a small screw located below the Dist. Cap that you can attach the ground wire to with a small ring tong terminal.
