Wobbly distributor cap? and an update on my starter problem
I just did the basic tune-up: , air filter, rotor, distributor cap, plugs, and wires.
My D-90 is running better than it has in a long time, but I notice that the distributor cap wobbles just a little bit. Now that I have driven it for a few miles, it wobbles less than it did initially, but if you look closely you can see it wobbling a tiny bit. Is this anything to be concerned with?
Oh, and an update on my starter motor problem. I replaced the Bosch unit with the older style Lucas/Marelli due to the fact that the Bosch unit has skyrocketed in price in the past month. I knew that my Bosch unit was on the way out, so the replacement is a good thing, but it seems that my starter problem is due to an old alarm installation that is cutting power to the ignition (even though the alarm had been removed years and years ago.)
At least I can crawl under the truck and start it with a piece of wire on the solenoid, so I am pleased to be driving it again. I'll be taking it down to my local mechanic friend to have him help me remove any of the old wiring from the alarm that is causing the problem . . . . I suspect that the alarm wiring harness may also ber responsible for the slow drain on the battery that requires that I use a battery cut-off switch if I want to start it after a few days of letting it sit. . . .
