    Distributor cover melted

    Sincerely appreciate the things to check, but I have a “no start”, issue. Wouldn’t things relating to advance/retard be a runability issue ? This whole thing started, when I replaced: wires, rotor, cap & plugs. Couldn’t restart after. No coughing, back firing, or sputtering, just cranking &...

    Distributor cover melted

    Well hunting season came & went, many other little chores to get the O’l homestead stocked with firewood, tools and projects cleaned up out of the driveway before snow fall. And I never did get the 40 restarted. Cold & dark mist the day, so relented and took the old girl into a local shop...

    Distributor cover melted

    So now I am a little freaked out. Doesn’t start after the ignition change out. Double checked the wires, so guess I need to see if the coil is working. But took some more pic’s showing heat on the cap & rotor. Seems more focused under the port for the red line coming from the firewall

    Distributor cover melted

    Replacing plugs, cap, wires & rotor on the original 2F in a 1980 FJ 40 This looks like it’s melted. What does it do ? Anybody have a PN for whatever this is ? So what if it’s melted, how will this effect performance?
