Restored / Rebuilt / For Sale


I rebuild all the old cast iron Bosch Vacuum and Mechanical advance distributors.
I can sell you one outright or I can rebuild your core.
Contact me at glenn@glenn-ring.com for details.

Here are just a few of the models I restore. The pictures are of the actual distributor.

Effective 01/15/2015: Bosch has drastically increased the price of rebuild parts so I'll have to increase the cost of rebuilding your core and selling a distributor outright.

All distributors are fully disassembled, cleaned and inspected. The bodies are then stripped and repainted. All broken, damaged or missing parts are replaced. They are reassembled using genuine Bosch shims, insulators, spacers and o-ring.

I do not replace or restore the badges.

These just need fresh tune-up parts and they're ready for another 40 years of service.

All prices do not include tune-up parts or shipping.
Any tuneup parts in the pictures are used and are not sent with the distributor.

I can install genuine Bosch tune-up parts so they're ready to use.
Contact me for details at glenn@glenn-ring.com.


If you already have a distributor, I can rebuild it for you.


Believe it or not this is the same distributor.


And sometimes they can't be saved.

circa 1958

Note -- Due to the increasing price for good rebuildable cores I had to increase the prices of my distributors that are purchased outright. Without this increase I simply would not have any distributors available for purchase and you would have to supply your own core.

Effective 11/30/2014: Bosch has drastically increased the price of rebuild parts so I'll have to increase the cost of rebuilding your core and buying a distributor outright.
