Re: Distributor??

I did file a little and got enough gap. Started and ran! The head of the distributor has some wear. It could be moved and the gap would widen. I checked mag output. I will likely remove the Bosch and go back to coils. Thanks for the advise!

Re: Distributor??

I am not able to get enough gap with adjustment. I’m sure the wiper is worn. My plan is to file enough to get enough gap. What is the proper gap 15-18? My goal is to use this to start the car to see how well it runs and check mag output as I would like to go back to coils.
