    I bought this cap along with other tune-up stuff for my father-in-law's S-10 pickup with a 4.3L V6. The quality looked no different than the OEM cap that came off, it fit perfect, and the truck fired right up when I got it all put back together. It comes with the cap and a pair of new screws. For less than half what an OEM cap costs, I don't see how you could go wrong.

            Once again what can be said, it does it's intended job. it's just as easy or difficult to install as the expensive models and does the same job. It's not a high performance part and is meant for daily use engines and it serves it's purpose and operates fine. Good value, good part.

            I replaced the stock distributor cap with this unit while doing a tuneup. After installation the truck was misfiring and running very rough. I put the old stock cap back on and it ran just fine. Not sure if I would want to try another
