[DML] Re: Radio Interference

Because it isn't clear that this is the source of the problem. It certainly *could* be but clicking that is RPM related could also be a bad cap, a problem with the coil wire, bad rotor, a bad ignition wire, etc. Besides. you just did. One clue would be if you get 1 click per rev or 6 clicks. Then you would know if the problem is before or after the distributor. Maybe the cap is on the wrong terminal or maybe it isn't even there!

While it was loose I would put an ohm meter on the it to make sure the capacitor charges up OK. I would replace the quick connect with a ring terminal before reattaching it to the coil.
