moisture fouled out the distributor cap,,so i replaced. now engine backfires on
starting and idles rougher than before,,
what do i check now?
I'd suspect moisture still in the ignition system somewhere, moisture is good for pointing out bad components. Have someone turn it over and listen by the coil for a snapping sound. That would be the spark finding its way to ground.
