Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Distributor Cap:

Center hole for coil contact is too small. I actually broke the supplied contact trying to get it thru. Had to file the hole out bigger & re-use my old contact. Coil didn't fit into top correctly; had to enlarge the top at the corners to receive the coil without cracking the cap. This part made an easy job tough to do. In the future, I'll pay the extra few bucks for a higher-quality dist. cap.

Comments about CARQUEST by BWD Distributor Cap:

The cap fit fine and included the grounding bar.

I would pay $10.00 more for a cap kit that had solid brass termnials, included a rotor and a coil cover.

Since the cap didn't include the coil cover I had to reuse the old one which didn't match the OE color and now things look out of place/mismatched.

This replacement unit is a gray color while the OE unit was black.
