Default Echlin #VC-1810 Vac can where to find?

Alot of posts reference this can since its in the vac advance 101 article.

It was not online at napa nor at Summit. Any ideas where to find it?

Its also called a "B28" can.

GM Parts Direct. There is another source but the name escapes me at the moment.

This is from an article by Lars Grimsrud, 4/19/01. According to John Hinckley , he and Lars concur on most data.

"There are many different sources for these control units. Borg Warner, Echlin, Wells, and others all sell them in their own boxes and with their own part numbers. Actually, there are very few manufacturers of the actual units: Dana Engine Controls in Connecticut manufactures the units for all three of the brands just mentioned, so it doesn’t make much difference who you buy from: They’re made by the same manufacturer."

you are correct! NAPA online says to go your local retailer and the local guys can't get it. Strange since its obvioulsy still available from others.

I ordered the AC-Delco PN from Rockauto; the NAPA VC-1810 canister is also known as GM PN88924985 and AC-Delco #D1312C (aka "B28")
