Not a whole lot of gap there. I also havent seen a cutout of a cap/rotor on a distributor so Im not really sure. (sounds like a good project with all the old chevy stuff laying around)

I guess if its dirty at all I always replace it. Usually they are pretty cheap and its not a bad idea to have good new ignition stuff on there.

Yep. If cleaning it does not work, it is so cheap and easy to replace most of them it is no contest wink

Pretty dirty!

Honestly I have never thought about how much gap there is between the rotor and the posts of the cap!?

Just for the heck of it go back and read the first post but forget that it's in the auto forum. Well it was good for a laugh by me, but look at the time!

If there's any crud, replace. You risk leaving residue behind by trying to clean and that can lead to tracking/arcing in the cap.

    • got time to check it out (finally). All it was was the positive side of the battery has 2 cables that run to it. I found the computer one was closest to battery and the starter one was on the outside. This had to be turned to starter cable first and the computer cable second ????.  Alls well after that. I also had to get a longer bolt in it to make a better connection..
    • I'm in, in zone 13
    • Tough game for the Preds.  Seemed like Rinne really let the team down last night.  The was a "Wild" like performance, shut the other team down and let in a couple softies and let the game slip away.  
    • congrats to your dad Borch!

    • Nice work Borch for you and your dad. Congrats . I have been seeing a lot of strutters of the weekend . Those 20 gauges are awesome sure put a hurting on .
    • Another fantastic week of fishing up in the Northwest Angle!

      Two weeks into the Minnesota season an abundance of saugers are congregating around Little Oak, as well as other small islands near Crow Duck, making for an easy shore lunch spot while staying close to home. Jigging at 18-24 has produced the most fish but it isn’t too early to be pulling spinners.
       
      On the Canadian side, walleyes are more dispersed but very plentiful on main lake points with current anywhere from 15-20 ft. of water, holes remain consistent.  Almost any method is producing fish, gold/yellow/orange jigs with a minnow seems to be the most popular.  The northern pike bite remains strong with many thirty plus fish being seen. 

      We hope to see you soon!

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
