I just put back my coil box yesterday, and the thought entered my mind that some type of rubber seal behind the box may help in rain.

Seeing this straight away bought back memories of a Morris Mini Minor I had where because the motor was transverse and the distributor ended up in front behind the grill BMC (British Motor Corp) put a rubber boot over the distributor cover. Those damn cars stopped every time it looked like rain.

I removed the boot and never had any more trouble. Looks to me one of these may trap moisture and drying it out may be a lot more of a problem than not having it. Never the less neat accessory - Jay do you have one?

Here is an adv for that style coil box protector, but the one on eBay is the first I have seen of these too. :-)

And here is another style, with flat rubber gasket behind the coilbox.

If you have a car with a 14-25 coilbox, and have gotten caught in a rain storm, you will know why they developed these. They must have worked?
