I think that when a person removes the coil to do a tune-up, often it gets set down on the workbench with the pigtail facing down and perhaps gets mashed down hard thus causing it to retract a bit. If it isn't checked at reinstall, obvious problems will result. Maybe we need to establish a set criteria for the pigtail to be set at and added to the front-mount distributor tune-up process documents? Whad'dya think? I just measured one of the half dozen I have here in my kitchen and I get 1.00" from the gasket surface to the pigtail point.
