9 year old distributor cap

Yep, should have changed this years ago......lucky it ran so well like this.
600 hours....9 years old. Never salt water use either.
Check your cap and rotor guys.....they don't last forever (who knew?) Name:  cap.jpg

Spark plugs, distributor caps & rotors should be changed every two years if you want maximum performance and best starting. It's not much of an expense and the benefits are worth it.
