View Full Version : new distributor cap?

05-02-2007, 03:12 PM
This winter I switched to EI and cannot get the boat to run at all. After investigating some possibilities I realized I need a rebuild kit for the carb, and possibly one other thing. Should I have replaced the distributor cap and rotor when changing the ignition? they are less than a year old, but i am not for sure if there is a different cap for them or not? any ideas or suggestions are much appreciated

Obviously you ++CAN++ replace the cap and rotor (and probably should if there's wear and /or cracking...I'd guess the boat would still run after your EI conversion with the old cap and rotor (mine did)....I went with DUI distributor (and will NEVER look back) after my old Mallory went south.
