    I decided to order the one from Thorcap.com and be Guinea pig. Total with shipping and currency exchange was $26USD. Figure I'm paying $15.50 for NAPA Echlin crap so $26 isn't bad if it is as robust as they claim. So for now I'll stick with points. Bernhardt makes a good point (no pun intended) about the possibility of a short taking out an electronic ignition. I hadn't considered that.

    I cut open my old condenser. Wow - easy to see why these things don't last. Very cheaply made with no provision at all for vibration resistance.
    Thanks for all replies.

    Wow, I should be selling $1 capacitors for $26. Clearly, I'm in the wrong business.. oh, wait, I'm not in business at all.

    Alright! Jason, if you think of it maybe put up a few pictures of the surgery and transplant operation, his website has some pictures but they arenít all that informative IMHO!
