I wouldnt recommend putting a lot of money in an XB distributor. Get a Wico mag or Delco dist. You will be way better off in the long run. The XB's were not known for being all that great

Well, my dad bought this B new, the year I was born and has done some kind of work almost every year since. Totally original and in her work clothes, she's always had this XB on her and always will. It has a 6 volt battery that just will turn it over when it's cold but she always cranks on the second or third revolution. Just have these 2 condensors and wondered if they could be checked. Have an extra XB with new parts but bad condensor. Guess I'll just try 'em. Thanks.

When I restore an XB I try to make sure the bore where the condenser is clean, also the wave washer that goes in before the condenser, and the clip and screw that hold the condenser are in place.
Condenser doesn't work right if it isn't grounded right.
I still have the 1950 JD B that dad bought new, and it served faithfully for many years with an XB. I put a Delco on it because I went to 12volt and wanted to use a 40K coil.
