You guys are tring to find part numbers for 60 year old engines.
Delco probably quit making them 30 years ago. All the ignition
replacement parts are avalable from many of the after market
vendors but they taint gonna be AC Delco.

Delco parts are found in the Delco catalog, doesn't mean you'll find them in a store .... the U406 rotor fits 1965/66 International trucks wink .... what difference does 6 or 12V make to the distributor cap and rotor? are you building a 'show quality' 46 restoration with a 58 engine?

U406 says its for a 65/66 international but if you do a cross references to napa part rr161 which is the rotor for a 58 235 it says u406. I try to use delco parts whenever possible. ill just have to buy the napa rotor since u406 does not seem to be made anymore.

I was told all AC Delco stuff was not made in America anymore, if that matters? China, Japan and Mexico to name a few.

no Denny, you missed the note:
"These items are manufactured by a variety of reputable tune up part suppliers and not necessarily by the original equipment manufacturer."

Yep, I sure did miss the note. So, why not just order the tune-up
from JC or Chevs of the 40's or such, I'd bet a dollar to a
donut that the reproduction parts all come from the same spot.
I've been using the repro parts since I brought the old gal
home in '05. Granted they taint the same quality as Delco was
and I'd rather have the origiinal Delco Remey parts but as I
said earlier, Delco probably hasn't made replacements for
several decades. The original Delco coils actually fit the
clamps and the terminals clips held the wire terminals much
better. The point sets, caps and rotors were made, well, just
better and fit better. But at least we do have someone that is
making a replacement even if it's not quite up to snuff.
We've got similar problems with many other old school manufacturers,
such as Walker, who used to make complete exhaust systems for
these old truck but now you can't even get a muffler that
matches the original from them.
