I also sent my unit to Advanced.  He did a fantastic job, looked brand new, and provided me a superior cap for a small charge.  My total was less than $120, installed the unit, and the car started on the first start.  Hit it with a light, made some adjustments, and all was well.

He does fantastic work, highly recommended.........Craig

If you are having trouble with your distributor, any part of it, you can send 
it to Advanced Distributors and Jeff will rebuild it better than new for around 
100 $. He will replace any worn part and install a new vacuum unit if 

I had him do my distributor on my 72 TR6 and it came back better than new and 
he micro polishes the body to a mirror shine,

After my 6 is done I am going to be shipping both my 3 and 4 distributors to 
him. He comes very highly recommended!
