Does anyone know of a source for the lubricating wick assembly (wick and holder) for standard points distributor, 68 big block?
It seems every used distributor I come across is missing this item. If yours is missing, what if anything do you use in lieu of the wick?
Thanks in advance...

If you buy the unisets, points and condenser as a unit, they come with the wick on them. where the individuals pieces dont and rely on the wick in the dist.

The Accel HD points come with a wick and grease. The wick fits over the cam rubbing block. Just installed a set last week.
