" the distributor cap at where the plugs plug in""

I think he's talking about the end of the rotor & the cap nipples......

But maybe not.

I think that I am talking about the end of rotor and the inside of cap (maybe called cap nipples) it is oppisite where the plug wires plug in. I thought that the rotor was supposed to actually touch the cap at each plug spot but it appears to be about 1/8 or so from touching?

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

If the rotor touches the cap while spinning at 1500 rpm, your gonna do lots of damage to the cap and button...probably more.

The gap you are talking about is supposed to be there. Spark will jump from the button tip to the cap contact as it rotates past, thus sending spark to your plugs.

Nipples are where your plugs connect on the outside of the cap. And yes they are "opposite" (inside vs. outside of cap) of each contact inside the cap.

Do as Dell said and make sure the spring tab on top of the button actually touches the coil contact on the inside center of the cap.

Man...this is getting confusing :lol: :lol:

Thanks for the reply. This thing is driving me nuts. I will check the spring tab on the rotor.
What about the 12 volts at the top of the coil and then with turning it over the voltage drops to 8.5 volts?

I've already answered that question once.

Are you getting my posts or did you overlook the answer?
