Includes hard to find serviceable OEM 24 Volt Coil. 24 Volt Auto Lite coils not sold separately as I only have a limited supply of OEM spares.

Ben.

Im looking for the early distributor IAU4004UT for an M38. This is the one without the filter. Hopefully I can find one with the firewall mounted filter and the cable that connects the two.

Do you have one perhaps?

You can always find the fire wall filter and cable on ebay but the distributors are extremely rare.It took me forever to find one for my 1950 M38 number 10675.

Those earl Firewall Filters were problematic and did not have as reliable a service life as the later filters that were in the distributor. Keep a tow chain handy. :wink:

Well since I have no plans on running any radio gear, even a dead filter works for me. I'll gut it if necessary...

When the filter fails, the Jeep stops, it is wired in series with #12 Circuit.

You can pull the connectors and drill it through and run a wire through solder in the connectors and put it back together.I keep a connector that I made just in case to tie the in and out connectors together if there is ever a problem on the road.Even the late type capacitors can fail.Unfortunately if the late type capacitor fails you are dead in the water unless you carry a spare.
