The title pretty much says it all! I have a 302 with the Autolite distributor. Got some fancy new plug wires to spruce up the engine a bit. I bought them at Summit here in Atlanta. The problem is the plug wires are for a male post-type distributor. I did not realize this until I got home. There is no. way. I am going to drive back through the city to return them! Traffic is a nightmare! So is there a replacement cap I can order with possibly an adapter to convert my female cap to a male cap? I do not have the money to straight out purchase a new distributor. Anyone done this? Thanks!
Hello all, I've had my 69 mach1 for 15 years now, and I just noticed for the first time this weekend a hissing sound coming from the gas cap after parking the car coming back from a normal Sunday drive. I popped the cap open, seemed to let the air in, popped it closed, hissing sound again. My immediate thought was that the round 1/8" thick (cork?) gasket that is supposed to seal the cap-to-fuel line had dried off and needed to be replaced. But after I searched and did not find any such gaskets for sale anywhere (I only found whole gas cap units that include the said gasket, but my unit is otherwise in perfect shape so does not need to be replaced), came these 2 questions : 1- I don't know much about air pressure in fuel line, so is that gasket supposed to be air-tight or instead that hissing sound is normal and I just never noticed it before? 2- if it is indeed supposed to be air-tight and it does need to be replaced, where can I find such a gasket? Ford? Autozone? NPD? Part number please? Thank you
