Default Delco Trailer

Hi. I was a bit of a regular a few years ago, but health concerns have interfered.
No doubt some of you have seen the following video but for the new folks here is the link.

I have since sold the unit to a good friend who lives close by and he needs a set of points, see my previous post.

Wow, what a nice display!

Of course knowing me I'd have to run a dedicated 32 volt circuit through my house and use it for emergency power.

I remember a points rebuilding service some years go, but I'll be darned if I can remember where. Seems to me they would replace the actual points with new platinum at a moderate cost. It was a valuable service and I hope someone here can locate them.

This subject is fairly timely, as I just decided my 850 may need new points also. It's a bit cranky to start and misses a beat here and there when running.
