[DML] Re: Farrar's distrubutor - theory.

As the fire started in a confined area(inside the Distributor)there 
is just only so much that can go wrong in there..electrical wise,and 
I have never heard of a electrical ark,inside a Distributor causing a 
meltdown/fire...those type of things are usually caused by a 
electrical short,since of course a spark does not have Amps behind it 
to do much harm....(otherwise 99% of the DML'ers would be dead by 
now..who has never been zapped!!)but a constant 12V does have the 
backup to do exactly what happened,and where INSIDE the Distributor 
is there a constant 12v to cause a short,but in the items mentioned 
in my previous postings...I am not saying that is WHAT caused the 
meltdown....as what was said it was a internal fire inside the 
Disturber that started it,but what else is there  INSIDE the 
Distributor that has a constant 12V that could CAUSE such a fire,a 
simple thing like a bad or weak or damaged part,that shorts out with 
a constant 12V applied will ALWAYS heat up and melt/burn,each car 
part is different,just because it happened in his car,does not mean 
it could happen in your car...you have to have the exact conditions 
to happen again...maybe there was one more added element,that was 
added to the above(such as the .050 gap on the spark plugs)that was 
the stress factor... that was the final say,or maybe a worn/weak part 
inside the Distributor,that caused the Distributor to short out and 
burn,that is WHY you cannot compare it to yours,until each item is 
removed and dissembled and examined carefully no one will know for
