Sidebar, for those who are young enough to like mopeds, but too old to remember when they originated in U.S.: Always, always, always ASK (politely!) for the most experienced, longest term auto-part guy there is available in any store.

Smile. Introduce yourself. Ask a name in return. Be pleasant. Establish a rapport with said employee. Otherwise...

REMEMBER--MOST OF THESE OTHER EMPLOYEES WERE BORN AFTER POINTS AND CONDENSERS WERE OBSOLETE. And they really don't give much of a damn.

I can't go to a "moped shop" and speak with anyone who understands these concepts/parts, because most of them are younger than my reconstructed body parts. Don't anticipate any more at an auto parts shop.

Ask for Standard Brand DR60 or equivalent. If they dont carry it or a cross reference ask them where the closest automotive store is so you can buy it there... or look online...

Most of the big chain auto parts stores have websites where you can search all their parts. go on their site and search for condenser. pick one you like and go in with the store's part number.
