In the last year i have gone through 1 distributor but 3 sets of caps and rotors. Have done a tune up new plugs and wires tried the brass contacts cap and rotor, new coil, had a mechanic check pos.
It still goes through cap and rotor like they are going out of style. Im at a loss.
Is it scorching them or just going bad with no signs of anything?
Could the distributor shaft be out of round?
There is a break down in your ignnition coil.Your probably finding red dust insife your distributor.A sure sign of weak fire and a bad ignition coil.
The contacts inside the cap are brass on the last one that i just changed they turned a white powdery look with black scores in the middle of each post
But no on the red dust And the distributor is new less than a year old not remanufactured.
Sound,s like the distributor is bad again,the distributor ground,s through the block,if you have this kind of problem,i would think it would be a ground to block problem,check all ground lead,s to the block and to head,s,bad ground will cause this.
