If the rotor doesn't seat all the way down, I've had some, it may not allow the cap to seat all the way down. In the gasket kit There is a round cork gasket around the cap that needs to be installed first. I once had to buy an aftermarket Cheena distributor (it was a Sunday, only thing open)at that 'tractor parts' store franchise next to McDonalds in town. I couldn't get the cap to seat down and discovered the rotor shaft sat too high on the unit. Be sure to press the rotor down all the way too. NAPA sells all quality parts, Made in the USA. Last June Farmer Dan and I spent a week going thru a dozen front mount distributors, rebuilding, and testing them. What we discovered was that the ECHIN Brand of pints, NAPA p/n CS-35, are no longer one of the better quality sets sold. The ones we tested could not be aligned, gapped, and timed correctly. There are three quality brands sold of the ones we tested. The good points are: Standard Ignition (Blue Streak); CNH; and TISCO. SI and CNH use the OEM type phenolic rubbing block/arm and the TISCO brand uses the plastic style arm. Two aftermarket tested were junk with similar results as the ECHLIN. The TISCO point kit includes a rotor, condenser, lube grease, and a reusable steel 0.015" feeler gage to set the breaker points with. My last set of TISCO lasted over 6 years. Here is my parts list:
