the last follow up
I want to add a final follow up on the issues I was having on my car.
I installed a known good distributor in the car and it ran great so I returned the distributor that I bought from advance auto parts.
The distributor was a brand new unit in a car quest box
Thinking was I wouldn't get 2 in a row bad I just exchanged it for another one.
Installed set timing and all was good .... for about 20 miles!
Started running bad no power cutting off ect.
The car suddenly was no longer drivable!had to have it towed! two tows in as many weeks. Glad I have AAA
I pulled on wires around the salt and pepper connectors around the distributor seemed like it made a difference would run, but really bad.
I looked at all the connectors and noticed that many had one or both clips broke so I decided to replace the engine harness with the harness made by Ron Francis.
The harness is a direct replacement and fits great very happy with the quality and fit!
I would recommend the harness to anyone in need of the injector harness.
After the new harness the car ran a little better or maybe it was wishful thinking as it was still un-drivable.
I was looking for a computer to try and mentioned the problem to one of my customers at work and he brought me a known good distributor and computer to try.
The distributor is quicker and easier to swap so I did that first and when I did the car runs better than it has since I bought it!!
So the moral of my story DO NOT use a distributor from Advance auto parts that is in a Car Quest box!
I also noticed the box says lifetime guarantee but the receipt was one year!
Makes me wonder about the quality (just saying....)
There were many hours of aggravation and many dollars spent because of Junk parts
By the way I had to return the borrowed distributor so I took
Hockeyman48's advice and bought the Richporter brand distributor from O'Rileys and it works great!
