Must be having a senior moment. I am fairly certain that I remember applying a light coat of dialectric grease to all of the contact points of the rotor(blade-end and spring contact) and inside the distributor cap when installing new components. Yes? No?<p>Well I did, and now the car has a very slight shudder. But, I also have a hole? in the coil wire (outside sheathing and outside braid). So, while waiting for a new coil wire, do I need to go through and clean off the dialectric grease, or should that be ok.<br>Thanks

I have never put dielectric grease inside the distributor cap. Usually you put some on the plug wires to help with removal later.

Dilectric grease should not be applied inside the distributor cap or on the rotor. <p>It is used on the spark plug boots where the touch the spark plugs to seal them from humidity and aid in easy removal. <p>Placing dielctric (non conducting) grease will lower or eliminate the ability for spark to pass. <p>This can easily be cleaned with non chlorinated brake cleaner and a rag.
