Well, you guys were right. The new dist cap was defective. I had them re-check for spark and there was good spark from the ign coil but some of the plugs were not sparking. He took the new dist cap off, put the old one back on and it started right up. He said the brass thing on the new cap was barely touching. I wonder if RN is gonna cover the new plugs and oil change I now need because of the defective part they sold me?
Anyway... Mike, Phil, Hans, Scot, thanks!
