1996-up all use the "crab style" cap. Many places do not update the model years applicable for at least the last two years.jeff024 wrote:only thing that comes up for my 04 is the accel is there any diffrence in years?
BWD Automotive wrote:...Alkyd's molecular structure is denser than phenolic, which means it can resist higher voltage levels than phenolic while using less material. Alkyd caps are thinner than phenolic caps, with a wall thickness of around 90 mils, but they are dielectrically stronger. Alkyd's peak dielectric strength is rated at approximately 32Kv, or 350 volts per mil. When alkyd first appeared on the scene, there was confusion about the quality of this cap design. Technicians were accustomed to seeing the thicker walled phenolic caps. Greater thickness was equated with greater voltage containment when, in alkyd's case, the opposite was true. Even now, some brands may try to use "material weight" as a quality benchmark, and offer phenolic material caps where alkyd material caps should be specified.
No. Thank you for adding yours to the review. What do they cost?killian96ss wrote:...have you compared the Accel cap & rotor to the ones listed above?
That sounds very encouraging!WVHogRider wrote:... I took some close up pics of the Accel terminals. I'm pretty sure they are machined. The edge is slightly rounded, and I think you can see some of the grove marks of the machining on the flat surface.

No screens in this housing, but vents all the same.killian96ss wrote:...don't forget to check your distributor vent screens for blockage.

You will have to blow them out as the hole is not straight through. You can't just poke something through to clear the passage.
Except that I think you can build a set better than that for less money.Muslhed wrote:A better option, maybe? ACCEL Truck Super Tune Up kit
