I put 1 of these together a long time ago, I used super glue CA on the wires after passing them through the top plate, then used epoxy to assemble the top plate to the lower "barrel". there may be other ways to do this, but it got the job done and is still on that model to this day.

While I'm sure it would look good when finished, it looks like too much work for a dizzy and I prefer to buy mine from M.A.D. as he has great products ready to use.

This is EXACTLY why I use the dizzy's from MAD. they are PRE wired, and for the price, you WILL NOT find a nicer more detailed unit anywhere! just glue the cap to the base and install. They even come in different cap/wire combination! The quality speaks for itself.

Yes but some of us like more detail than 8 wires pushed into a piece of aluminum. Every distributor I have ever seen, touched, fixed does not look like what some offer in the aftermarket.

Please take moment to check these out. Each wire has its own hole and, each cap has the detail of the real thing. We also have color choices for both the cap and, wire to please anyone. www.madmodeling.com

You OBVIOUSLY have not seen a MAD distributor. Separate towers for each plug, just like the REAL caps, any color como for wires, and a great price. NO mistakein these dizzy's for a cheap "wires pushed into a peice of aluminum tubeing" that's for sure!

I have used the Detail Master kit quite a few times. They are fiddly to build but look really nice when completed, they have been around for a long time and when they came out were probably the nicest piece out there but the MAD units look great and are super easy to use.

So does anyone make a prewired 12-cylinder distributor? (1/25 6-cylinder Maserati uses one distributor with twelve plug wires - 2 plugs per cylinder - and two coil wires.)

if you are going to use that distributor, I would like to make one suggestion...

In the directions, they tell you to cut your wire into 8 2inch lengths, but it will make your life a lot easier if you cut it into 4 4inch long pieces, fold in half and then slide the wire through 2 holes on the "cap". This way you do not have to glue each individual wire into the "cap" and they hold better.
