            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.

              • Q:

                Hi, I have a 1997 F-350 7.5L, 460 and wish to tune it up. Plugs, wires, cap & rotor.
                The truck does not get driven very much as it gets a cool 8MPG but it does run well as it only has 138,275 on the clock.
                What would you use if you were doing the job?
                Thanks for the help in advance.

                  Hi Fuzzy! This MSD Ignition Distributor Cap/Rotor Kit, Ford (Part No. 8482) is an exact fit for your 1997 Ford F-350 7.5 L and these are considered as maintenance items, when you change the oil and filter in your car, you should always replace your cap and rotor as a set. However, I would suggest that you take your vehicle and get it thoroughly checked by a certified mechanic before buying any parts that may/may not solve the problem.
