Jim,

It only made sense to change the entire distributor, the part is only $102 and I have the piece of mind that it is all new. The inside of the distributor cap was pretty corroded and 20 years old. The priced difference was pretty nominal at the end of the day, IC Module was $37, the pick-up coil was $20ish and the entire distributor was $102. Im a fan of everything new. The engine sounds better now after retiming it than it has in the last 2 years.

Did you put the old cap and rotor back on?
No I changed the entire distributor out, new everything. The price wasn't to bad. Only $102.

That's because tune-up parts had been neglected for so long. It's not just mileage that determines when these parts need to be replaced- it's also environmental.

You put it in diagnostic mode when you adjusted the timing, right? If not, do that- you would know if it was in this mode by seeing the timing mark staying in one position, rather than jumping around. It was set to 10 degrees BTDC, right?
