I emailed ALDON and this was their response.  It appears there are inferior products now in circulation.

HI JOHN

YES YOU ARE QUITE RIGHT ABOUT THE SIZES WE HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM.

IF THE CAP IS TOO SMALL WE NOW MACHINE OR DE - BURR THEM TO FIT.

WE HAVE VARIOUS SIZES IF YOU CAN MEASURE THE OUTER DIAMETER WE WILL SEE WHAT WE CAN DO


REGARDS PAUL

I ran with an Aldon 100AYV for many years but I think its a 45D distributer, the cap of which might not fit on a 49D/59D distributer.

***Edited 45D not 49D***

Hello Everyone!

I am currently racking my brain as to what the problem may be with fitting a new distributor cap and looking to see if anyone else has recently had issues as well.  I bought 2 genuine caps from Minispares and none of them fit.  In fact the first cracked all the way up the side once i finally got it on.  Is there a circulation of inferior products going around.  My last tune up was done in 2017 and I never had this issue.  Please help and thanks in advance!

Dizzy Details:  ALDON Yellow 100AYPV Vacuum Advance A+ Dated 2015.

If anyone has a reliable source or part number please let me know
