Distributor rebuilder recommendation

I am looking for a reliable re-builder for a recently obtained properly date coded points distributor for my ws code 65 gto tri power. I live in Southern California so LA/SD area preferable but quality is more important.

Not in your area, but a guy who goes by "Sun Tuned", on the PY forum, does dist.

His area code appears to be 901, which is in the Memphis, TN area.

The guy obviously knows what he's doing, as you can tell, if you care to read his posts in this thread he started.

Sun Tuned has an excellent reputation.

My brother still uses points in his Chevelle but has had a difficult time finding quality replacements for the points locally (China---points burn up, rubbing block wears out.) He got burned on an ebay deal once and refuses to look there for GM points.

With my back problems, I seriously thought about Sun Tuned but couldn't see me bent over checking gap and dwell , etc. On a friend's recommendation, I sent my points distributor to a fellow named Dave Ray who has an excellent reputation for converting GM points distributors to a GM HEI distributor using an external canister coil like the points set-up would. I had mine done and am very happy, still looks like stock points. Like Sun Tuned, Dave will set up a custom advance curve on one of his distributor machines using info you provide him (carb, intake, camshaft, trans, rear axle, etc.). He also provides a list of components he uses and where to find them locally.

Here's a link to a post about him: Who has used Dave's small body HEI's? - Chevelle Tech

Here's a link to his site if you're interested: About - DAVE's small-body HEI's There are several different pages on his site with info. Hope this is helpful.
