Default So who's the go-to guy for rebuilding distributors these days?

Merry Christmas and Happy new year!!!!

I'm in the process of dropping the engine/trans over the winter for a clutch job (100k and no record of ever being changed) and a few minor leaks and seeps (valve covers, rear main, timing chain covers, ps pump. etc). Nothing that leaks enough to puddle on the floor but knowing that they're there is driving me crazy.
Anyway, I'd like to get the distributor rebuilt at the same time, again no record of being done. I'm a bit apprehensive of doing it myself and I'll have enough to do to keep myself busy. Who would be the go to guy to rebuild it? I searched on here and pelican and came up with a few names but every thread I found is over 5 years old. Also a google search found me a shop in Kansas City called RennsportKC which only has a few reviews but the ones they do have are good.

Any recommendations?

I sent mine to SteveW, at Rennsport Systems, total rebuild was about $700, I would call him the go to guy for this, probably can get it done cheaper but not better

You shouldn't be; bearings and the correct (non-Gates) belt are both widely available and the rebuild itself is trivial. You don't even need to remove the secondary shaft when replacing the belt.
