Ed is 100% on this. It's odd that the OLD Bosch condensers as used on Alfa Bosch distributors have more life left in them than the new aftermarket condensers. One on my Ausca single plug 1600 race engine with a Bosch JF-4 is 50+ years old and still just fine! The same is true for the Marelli condensers used on both V12 Ferrari distributors and old original Marelli GTA distributors. Those just last and last. YES, some do fail, but not nearly as often as the new ones.
This has just been my experience.
