Re: [DML] distributor cap and rotor

How much does not greasing the idle speeb pipe and cup seal affect 
idling.  I have a hot idle problem that the idle goes up and down, 
to the point of the engine almost stalling, then catching itself.  
The tube is inside the O-ring, but I did not lube it when I 
reinstalled.  Can a lot of air pass through this?  Does the grease 
prevent the vacuum leak?  Also, what kind of grease, like wheel 
bearing grease?
