distributor cap

Postby elmer » July 26th, 2018, 11:50 am

Hi everyone, I bought a new distributor cap for my A2 but I have a question.
The cover that I received is different from the one I have installed now.
Why are they different? v
If I install it one day will work well?
Which is better?
I bought it because I was thinking about changing the original because it was a little broken on the bottom but Rick told me it was not important. I'll keep it as a replacament.
You can see in the photos the new cap I received and the one I have now
On the other hand, I would like to test the spark plug wires. Does anyone know what resistance the cables have to have?
Thanks
elmer

hi

the wires has zero ohm resistance

i think it is no problem
it is a other brand not usa military contrackt
if i see your wiring it has sit stuck at the cap
take a bit from the bottom so the wires sits normal and free
put also the wire holder plate on

There shouldn't be any resistance in the wires themselves, but the plugs should read less than 5000 ohms to be good.

The only plug wires that show 0 resistance are old solid core wires. Any radio suppression wire will have a resistance value. I don't know what they are supposed top be but if you check all four wires and they are the same you are probably in good shape.
