    The cap is hard to get to at the firewall, but that is no fault of the cap manufacturer. Be careful putting it on to make sure it is properly aligned. It is easy to put on and not quite have it in the alignment slots correctly. (I found this out when pulling off my old one and found out it had a little play in it). It would be nice if the plug number markings were bigger and easier to see.

          Very poor quality. I Installed it in my own truck and not even 7 months later there is no fire to cylinder 2 from this cap. I would strongly recommend getting a different brand or going to different place for one.

              If I didn't use it myself I wouldn't believe it. These caps will just not hold up to GM's HEI systems. caps and rotor within 7 months, no way. Never ran quite right either. Got P0300 codes? Good chance it's this cap. Runs like new with AC Delco.

                  I have used this cap before as i own a repair facility. However, I recently just experienced a problem with this cap where i had a random misfire code P0300 due to terminals 3&5 shorting out within the cap itself. Exchanged it with another one from the store as a defect,and problem solved.

                                If the bottom part still has the screw in it, i would try to get the screw out. if you can not get it out i recommend just buying a brand new distributor.
