Default Re: Rotor gap to distributor body terminals

I'm very new at this as everyone here knows. But I figured i'd mention my personal experience with this.

I recently purchased a repro distributor body and rotor also. The gap was very close and I left it. I ended up having a problem when the flat plug connectors moved the distributor body slightly and it caused the rotor to rub on one of the terminals which took off some brass.

I then decided to increase the gap simply to allow for any movement. I did this by bending the end of the rotor slightly down. This also aligned it better with the center of the contacts in the distributor body.

Please note the movement I have is in the distributor body and the distributor it self. Not the rotor/shaft.
