So I bought an aftermarket distributor cap ONLY three years ago. Black with LUCAS imprint, looked like decent quality, brass center connector, they go for about $50.
Popped it today and there is a hairline crack heading towards two of the plug connectors. Also, the little thingie for the center electrode popped out of the spring and I cannot get it back in.
I’ve decided to order the OEM version, which is about $100 (!). It is also black with the Lucas imprint. I hope this one holds up?
I also see the blue Intermotor caps for about $50, but I just don’t know what quality they are like?
So I pushed hard with both thumbs on inside of cap where the “Y” shaped hairline crack was. This happened.
Anybody want to buy a used Lucas cap?
