If the distributor cap and rotor are a package, you should include the wire retainer. I did not have to replace the oil. I tried to purchase the retainer, but was not able to. I had to use my old retainer,the new cap would look alot better with a new and matching color.

            I put this on my 1969 Chevy Blazer that I converted to HEI. The Accel cap went bad. It is heaver duty and has brass terminals. It also came with new screws for the coil cover, dielectric grease and a rubber seal. It has a selection of rotor buttons too. I like it better than the Accel cap by far.

              WHAT IS THE FIRING ORDER ON CAP

              • CUSTOMER CARE

                A:

                In a gasoline engine, the correct firing order is obtained by the correct placement of the spark plug wires on the distributor. In a modern engine with an engine management system and direct ignition, the Engine Control Unit (ECU) takes care of the correct firing sequence. Especially on cars with distributors, the firing order is usually cast on the engine somewhere, most often on the cylinder head, the intake manifold or the valve cover(s).
