    Dizzy cap and leads

    Evening

    I want to tidy up the engine a bit and I’m for changing the distributor cap and leads for blue ones.
    Where’s the best place to buy and is it a straight forward job provided I get the lead order the right way round? I’m assuming yes but I’ve been wrong before(!)
    Thanks
    Ross

    What engine Ross? if rover - then jrv8 as mentioned if ford or chevy, then realsteel is worth a shout - i bought blue max spiral MSD plug leads, you cut to length and fit plug end i think it is, so you can get the right size you need.

    Hi
    Any body used one of those "trick " Crossover distributor caps where the leads come out 4 one side and 4 the other instead of the usual birds nest
    for a Chevy engine

    Fixed that for you.
