A lot of people have repotted the Prestolite modules that have the material that degrades and slimes out. Most of the ones I know used wood based epoxy resin.

I'm putting all the parts I have in a sip lock bag with the absorbent packs and keeping it in the MUTT tool box as spares. I am being a little gun shy on this MUTT for the next month or so as it starts and runs and I can move it in and out of the shop as space requirements dictate. Perhaps one week in the spring, I'll revisit all this and see what the new parts change, if anything.

Wiring up Dodge M37, converting M762 to M416, creating new leather seats and frames for Dodge 56 command car and I've got a 26 Model T in the shop just screaming for attention this winter.
