Symptoms of a worn out distributor cap? 1968 Mustang 302
so ive been having problems with surging and the car dying out and stalling. So i went ahead and checked the distributor cap and this is what i saw, there was carbon residue and the plastic around the electrodes was melted. I was wondering if this could be the cause for the surging and dying out? My mustang has a 302 with a four barrel street avenger 570 cfm carb.
