For only a few dollars more I was able to order a distributor with the cap and rotor included.My 1997 Silverado 5.7L was randomly misfiring and had a broken distrubutor cap mount (cheap plastic distributor base) and the gear was VERY worn so a new, complete distributor was in order. This distributor is well-made (metal base and mounts!) and came ready to drop in. I simply labeled and removed my plug wires, removed the plug from cylinder 1, had a friend bump the key to slowly turn the motor over until I felt the compression stroke of that cylinder, then used the serpentine belt to turn the motor over while I used a long screwdriver to locate TDC. After that I removed the old distributor and carefully installed the new one.Thankfully the newer Vortec Chevrolets self-correct timing up to 2 degrees so there's a little fudge-room for the distributor installation and NO TIMING LIGHT needed! My misfires are gone and my CEL is off. Very easy and, since everything was included in this package, very convenient install.

I have been a mechanic for 15 years and have never seen such poor quality and failure rate. I have put 3 of these distributors in my personal truck and all 3 have only lasted about 8 months before going bad and having to replace it again.

        Comments about Cardone Select Distributor - Electronic - New:

        I have been an Auto Technician for 30 years and my experience with Cardone rebuilt parts is that they are garbage. Quality control is an unknown concept to this company. This allegedly New Part had a bent rotor head right out of the box. I should have known better than to take a chance on this brand, but it was the only affordable distributor on the Advance website.

                    Removed existing dist.cap and marked rotor orientation. Marked dist orientation. Watched as I removed old dist and noted rotation coming up. Matched new dist. to the spot of the old one coming out. As it dropped in the rotor turned to match my mark. Lined up my distributer mark, tightened hold down and it started up.

                            The timing on vortec engine is automatically set by the computer, most likely a scanner is required to instruct the computer as what to do.
