Well, I got off work at 6 today and was taking a nice drive home in my 69. Blowin down the highway at about 80 I started to hear a "funny" sound. The sound went a way so I slowed down and was headed to my house when it back fired and died!! Well, somehow the cap got cracked and the rotor unbolted itself and lodged one of the mounting screw into the cap, bent the rotor up, etc. I jacked with it a little while and actually got it to limp home, about 1.5 miles. I shut it off and it dieseled(missspelled, i know or I think I know) real bad a had a funny smell to it. So I guess I will order a new distrubutor tomorrow. I have had a little trouble with this one msd 8361, so I may try another. I run total msd ignition 6al, etc, so I would like to stick with that...anyway, just venting, have a good one and I am going to have a cool one.

You're lucky! My funny noise turned out to be a broken rod and cracked main web, not repairable. :sad: 302 DZ block is now an anchor.:angry:
