In general, Advanced Distributors is very highly regarded in the collector car community. I used them to rebuild the distributor for my 1970 Volvo 1800E. They did a great job on the normal part of the distributor, i.e. the ignition points and the advance mechanism. However, this particular car has Bosch D-Jetronic fuel injection, so it has another two sets of points ("trigger points" for the injectors) which sit on a pull-out tray in the lower part of the distributor, and these may not have been adjusted properly; I bought a special jig from someone in Germany to reset them to specs - replacement parts are almost "unobtanium"; people sell NOS trigger points for $350 on Ebay.
I don't know what kind of a distributor that you are trying to repair, but I imagine that they will do a good job with it.
