Default Distributor Rebuild

I have my original 480 distributor for my 69 z28 that has not been in my car since who knows. Therefore I am looking for recommendations of someone who can go through this and check it out and make sure its setup right.

Whos a good distributor guy?

Jerry MacNeish is still the best distributor rebuilder out there IMO. Does it right and recreates the paint daubs when restoring one to factory spec. Reasonable prices and decent turn around times as well.

There are several guys out there. Jerry is one of the best.

40 years ago I used to help my dad when he was rebuilding them. We had a Sun distributor tester. I wish I still had that.

Has anyone had Jeff Dotterer from Dated Components rebuild and set up a distributor. He also has a Sun machine.

Jerry did the distributor for my '68Z. It was perfect...done after 'the other guy' had purportedly restored it.
