      Comments about Accel Distributor Cap And Rotor Kit:

      I bought this to replace an OEM HEI cap and rotor on a '83 Chevy C10 p/u. I have done hundreds of these over the years. When I read Hillbilly's comments about having to shave off part of the electrical connector to get it to work, I figured he must have had some kind of aftermarket connector that wasn't shaped right. Lo and behold, I ran into a similar situation in trying to plug in mine, and these were definitely stock.
      I was able to get things connected by removing the coil cover and maneuvering the contacts while positioning the connectors, but it wasn't easy. That said, I felt pretty good that they would not come loose given how tightly they fit.
      The other issue I had was that the spring loaded hold-down screws did not secure the cap as tightly as should have been. I wound up seating the "L" arm of each screw onto a higher portion of the boss on the distributor in order to have it hold snugly.
      All in all, I would not have bought this item if I had it to do over. I would have returned it if I had not been able to get it to work.

          had to shave edge of tach plug to get it in. they molded in a corner in the corner so you can't put plug in without shaving. i will never buy accel again.

            Does the Accel 8122 distributor cap provide the same "corrected" plugwire arrangement as accel 8141R?
