Condenser Information

Here is a very useful bulletin to refer to when your Wico is out of whack and the condenser is out of warranty. The condenser is actually a capacitor in the electrical engineering profession.   A rather misleading choice of terminology back in the day.  This shows the actual capacitance in MicroFarads for specific models. It is apparent that it is not a critical absolute value given the range. The voltage rating is probably near 400 volts working. An automotive device will be designed for this type of service and work well. We have some info on currently available automotive devices that you can source from your local auto parts jobber. Other types of capacitors may also work but they would need to be able to handle some spike currents that will appear when the points open and there is an inrush of current  till the capacitor charges .
