Hey Don..Thanks for the reply..
"15 years"..lol..sounds bad doesn't it.
This 1955 235 Chevy has sat most of this time..
Makes me wonder if some of these components
become defective due to time(age) or from being
used. Before sitting engine was rebuilt and all new
electrical components...Best guess engine only has 10,000
miles on it..but 15 years time wise. No doubt I'll replace the rotor
cap and points. Plugs and fuel filter are new as well as the cylinder head.
What looked and felt like black grease on the metal contact on the rotor
that touches that carbon piece on the cap throws me. It must be some of that carbon powder thats mixed with something to form a paste. I wiped it off with a paper towel.
Thanks for taking the time to respond.
