      Comments about MSD Ignition Distributor Cap/Rotor Kit, Ford:

      Replacement cap with retainer. Looks good installed and it performs like stock one. If you are racing, the retainer keeps wires from coming loose from vibration. I just bought it for looks.
      Did not get 5 stars because the fit to the distributor took some wrestling to get it seated in the groove. Maybe the cap is a bit distorted.
      Hard to get the boots on, but thats the way its supposed to be.

        Easy to install. Took about 10 minutes taking my time. Screw-on cover is a plus, as it keeps the plugs from popping off. Noticed a definite improvement in driving and idle over the old one that I replaced. Definitely recommend.
