I have probably rebuilt over 300-500 Ford Tractor distributors in my life, mostly front mounts. I have never had a "bad" condenser. I almost always replaced the condenser when doing a distributor tune-up/rebuild only because the kit included a new one. I must have a hundred old condensers at the farm in coffee cans. I know recent discussions in the past few years have mentioned that some 'new' condensers are junk out of the box and that I do not doubt what with all the aftermarket Cheena made crap now. Back in the day they made condenser testing units. HEATHKIT made electronic kits you could build yourself and offered a few models. Many are still around including commercial units most service stations and shops had too. How many remember walking into your local drugstore or hardware store and there was a tube testing machine setting there? Those also could test condensers.
