need to know what parts I need for it. Is it a VW or something else. Helping a fellow T owner with his 25 T coupe had it a year now has time to get it running.

Chris, if it is VW there will be the VW part number stamped in the housing. It might be on the bottom side.

Oh PS..I am getting better shifting the Warford! :-)

Interesting mount, I kind of like it!!
VW caps take a smaller plug wire boot than most things. I just struggled with this issue. Might be a tip to check

Often replacing the condenser and filing the points will get most distributors working. Any ignition condenser that you can connect should do the job

Bosch used on many European cars. Points on some interchangeable. Of course it would be from a 4 cylinder industrial motor.

A picture with the cap off would be helpful.

Just guessing, with a little bit of farm engineering, I would hazard a guess that something like a Farmall distributor could be adapted to a T.
