Default Re: moisture in cap again

Most good auto parts stores or marine supply or marinas will stock CRC. You could probably find it in an Overton's Marine Supply Catalog. Overton's is a Nationwide supplier and their headquarters is in S. Carolina I believe so you should be able to find an Overton's or a West Marine Supply in Ga.

Good Luck,

Thanks for help
Yea know,some times people make changes to a flathead and expect it to be a miracle worker [elec.mallory].Theres nothing wrong with a stock points and cond dist. Ive built a hundred of them and never had the trouble you have,try going back to a stock dist and see what happends. OMO ken ct.
