Did I spray to much inside cap and around points I wonder ???!!! Thanks for any help
Yes, but with care. there are vent holes in the cap. I tend to avoid wetting the cap. May cause more harm than good.
I don't think the ign sealer inside the cap was a good idea. If it is silicone based that burns... burn the points ??? just a guess. How are the points by the way? Timing and dwell set right?? Just tossing out some thoughts here.....
