[DML] Re: Can someone explain this? (distributor positioning)

I just got my current ECU from DMCH just a few months ago, I'm 
pretty sure it isn't defective?is there any way to test the 
frequency valve part of it? How do I test the O2 sensor? When I 
changed the plate that mounts all the connections and coil on the 
engine bay bulkhead, I noticed wires cut and spliced into different 
wires [behind the plate inside the pontoon]; I noticed in particular 
one of the wires had a capacitor spliced in, was this a recall or 
update, or someone else's mess? It wasn't any of the wires from the 
FV plug though?-----Dani B. #5003
