    Manufacturer's Part Number:

    MSD distributor caps and rotors are designed with performance in mind and molded from high-quality, voltage-insulating material with terminals that resist carbon tracking. Whenever the distributor cap is changed, you should install a new rotor. Likewise, if you're replacing the rotor, be sure to install a new cap as well. MSD has new kits featuring Rynite injection molded distributor caps and retainers to complete your distributor tune-up. MSD also has Cap-A-Dapts to fit large Ford-style caps onto MSD distributors.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Misfiring like crazy I bought this for my 97 K1500 and my engine had all kinds of misfiring. Pulled in off but the old one back on and it ran better so I shipped it right back and got my $ back.

    Just learning about a "correcting distributor cap" the Keeps the plug wires on the same side of the cap as the same number plug. So there is no Criss-crossing of wires on the distributor. Is this that type?

    These are not made currently. This is made for the Vortec engine only.
