Re: Best brand of distributor cap and rotor?

SMP "Blue Streak" is what I used for years but are no longer available so now I am using the "Duralast Gold" Cap and Rotor kit from AZ which is top of the line manufactured by Wells Electronics.

Re: Best brand of distributor cap and rotor?

Airtex/Wells has a Premium line and looks to be quality parts.
https://www.rockauto.com/en/moreinfo...97816&jsn=1027


Airtex Premium Distributor Cap and Rotor Kits include caps that are molded from mica-filled & glass-filled polyester for the best dielectric strength in the market. Tough, highly-conductive brass and copper inserts are used to increase efficiency by resisting corrosion and oxidation. The rotors have brass blades in the precise size with radio frequency interference (RFI) suppression coating that ensures accurate spark gap to eliminate RFI. Features corrosion-resistant stainless steel contact springs to maintain tension.

RockAuto.com also has the CH408X cap, but since the ign wires are the contacts, I don't think the $20+ cost is justified.
