MSD Pro-Billet HEI - New Cap & Rotor?

My 355 SBC has an MSD #8365 Pro-Billet HEI. It works great, and if I understand correctly it is made here in the USA. However, I'm going for an old school/stock appearing look, and therefore not wild about the flaming red distributor cap. Does anyone know if a good quality stock AC/Delco, NAPA, (or other) black cap will work on this distributor? They look the same to me, four mounting lugs at the base, same wiring connections, etc, but I am an expert by no means.

8360 is available in black, as I remember and has small cap, or you could paint red cap ?

IMO, Red works w/Turbo Fire and Turbo Jet just fine ! 😁

Re: MSD Pro-Billet HEI - New Cap & Rotor?

Stock socket type black replacement works, any good auto parts store. MSD small vcap distributors have the same cap mounting as a points distributor, MSD has two of their own HEI type replacement caps, same part, but one is the red cap, the other is black, after market has a blue available. Large HEI, same as stock GM black caps.
