Need your distributor restored, then you've come to the right place.
Camaro Hi-Performance specializes in AC Delco distributor restoration and
pride ourselves as being the best in the business. If you don't believe
us, read our customer feedback. We restore more distributors than anyone
in the restoration business. Here are some of the facts: we first
disassemble all distributors to inspect for wear. We reskin (a gentle
tumbling process) that restores the aluminum housing to brand new
original condition. Cast iron units are glass beaded and painted semi
gloss black. When the assembly process begins, we blueprint every
distributor checking and setting clearances for ultimate performance. A
new Delco vacuum advance is installed and the distributor is tested on
Sun #404 Distributor machine. High-quality Accel points and condenser
are used and tested to 8000rpm. You also receive a certified calibration
data sheet showing every detail about your unit and how the curve is set
Below we will show you some photos comparing our distributor work to
another inferior competitor of ours.
This photo shows an inferior rebuild from a shop in
Pennsylvania, note that we have a feeler gage showing about .070" in end
play between the distributor housing and the gear. This is poor
rebuilding practice and unacceptable. This much clearance will cause
serious dwell fluxuation problems when the engine rpm's are increased.
Here is the gear end clearance setting done by us. We set
all end clearances to .020" or less.
Our competitor uses stock heavy weight springs that won't
allow your centrifical advance to work properly. With these springs,
total centrifical advance will not come in until 5500rpm. Throttle
response suffers and you lose power and idle characteristics.
We use a special light weight spring that lets all of the
centrifical advance come in at 2800-3000rpm. Setting up your distributor
this way increases power, throttle response and better engine idle.
Our competitior uses inferior points (only good to 5000rpm)
without a lubricated felt pad on the point rubbing block. Doing this
will wear out your point rubbing block in no time and cause dwell
We use a high quality Accel GM point set that tests well to
8000rpm. We also install a felt rubbing block to keep wear to a minimum.
Camaro Hi-Performance also has a special advance bushing
made for all GM distributors. Our bushings are oversize allowing us to
shorten the advance curve making better engine power and throttle
Here is a typical calibration certificate that we give to
you, the customer with every distributor that we restore.
Here is our Sun #404 distributor machine. All distributors
we restore are tested to 8000rpm.
All distributors are shrink wrapped before we box them up
