Most point type ignition "condensers" were the same value as the external
"capacitor" on Ignition coils and voltage regulators (or elsewhere in the charging
system. I recall specs from when I was in high school automotive class but that was
~30 years ago.
You're a Ham, I'm an antique radio collector. We both "should" know how to calculate
the proper voltage and MFD for this cap! I know I can't ;( I'm thinking 1-10 mfd at
about 600v. Non electrolytic, non polarized, off the top of my head. I've used caps in
that range for radio supression on aftermarket installs..
