Replacement for 94 JGC

Perfect fit for a JGC 94. My old cap was over due for a change.

              Comments about BWD Distributor Cap:

              Had a '87 Ford Ranger of my father-in-laws that would not want to start on a rainy day. After some time with a hair dryer under the hood on the distributor cap, a person could then coax it to start. After much delay, I had finally purchased the parts. After some more delay, I finally put the parts on. While I was at it, I also replaced the distributor cap and the rotor. Both the cap and rotor had plenty of corrosion on the contactors. After getting everything back together, the little pick-up runs like a champ!! It started up great this morning--and it is raining a lot today. I'm glad that I got this completed!!

                  Can you tell me the difference between the C238 and C238P distributor caps?

                    A:

                    Hello Mr Entertainment, I'm glad to assist you! The fit and function remains the same for both C238 and C238P. The only difference is C238 will be an exact O.E (Original Equipment) replacement while C238P matches the original, designed with the professional installer in mind. P-Series product competes with the OE and dealerships.

                • Q:

                  I have a 1985 Ford Ranger 2.8L V6. How do I know if I need with or without cap adapter? There is no adapter on my old cap, so I assume I don't need one for this cap, true?

                    I'm glad to assist, Rick! If you have BWD Distributor Cap - Part No. C238P, then there is no need for the adapter.

                • Q:

                  Where is the number one position on the distributor cap in regards to the orientation of the little black vent cap. In other words, from the right hand screw back to the left hand screw going counterclockwise, what is the firing order? I have a 96 Jeep Cherokee Country 6cyl 4.0 inline 6.
                  Thanks,
                  Edward

                    From the front in a clockwise rotation the firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4. The one closest to the right hand side screw is 4 while the one closest to the left hand side screw is 5.
