    Does anyone know where one can purchase a clear transparent vortec distributor cap? I bought one on ebay, but they are now out of stock.

    The problem with that is that a 6 cylinder distributor and a V-8 distributor are not the same diameter, so mating the two is impossible. Like was said if there are no pictures it never happened.
