I didn`t bring a car, but I flew 3000 miles to the 2018 event, and had an absolute blast. Driving or towing the 46 hour trip (each way) is high on the bucket list.

Just curious, anybody else from the site going ?      I'm bringing my recent "hood find" q code for the show as they have a diamonds in the rough car show class.......  I might even make a pass or two if I'm feeling bold.

(Actually It would kinda suck busting something as it's all numbers matching but you never know   ;D )

If they want cars with patina, this cars got patina .........

My wife and I will be there. We're bringing our 67 Fairlane station wagon instead of the Mustang because the engine will be out and it's short block is being delivered to its new owner there. The car will be ready for the Fredericksburg MCA Grand National show with its fresh 10 over 459 cubic inch roller cam date code correct short block.  Oops. Did I say that out loud?😉

In my opinion, this is one of the best events going on each year.

We'll be there as will many others from the Registry.

Kind of wet on Friday but I had a great weekend anyway.

We caught a bunch of lucky breaks and managed to win the Cobra Jet class!

I broke a distributor rotor right at the finish line in the first round.

Fortunately Steve had a new one at his swap meet spot that was right across from my truck and trailer. Paul found a rotor at the vendor's spot right next to Steve.

I replaced both and had no other issues.

Well that was too easy to figure out!

I was running a repro "Autolite" distributor cap.

One look at the inside and it is clear that the terminals are not worn evenly from side to side.

The rotor was an original Motorcraft part and there is no end play in the distributor.

I'll take some measurements but I'm willing to bet that the terminals were not cast concentric with the surface that registers on the distributor.

Yes Chris, let us know what you find out about the cap terminal measurements. Since it was running OK until that moment, do you think something “shifted”?

   I'd be there with my 68.5 too!

Post by: Chris Teeling on May 01, 2019, 10:09:01 pm
It's difficult to measure but it appears that the center of the pin pattern is about 0.020 out versus the center of the cap register.

Post by: rockhouse66 on May 02, 2019, 07:32:01 am
I have seen an issue with these caps not seating correctly on the distributor.  Casting flash or a dimension issue at the base of the cap perhaps.

Normally the spark can jump another .020 but perhaps not this time.
Reminds me of efforts we worked on at Ford to reduce EMF (electromatic field radiation) from the distributor cap - a gov requirement. A recently washed car helped-- and believe it or not the addition of peanut butter to the rotor tip really helped. I believe we used a little silicone grease in production.
Also reminds me of the day an idling car at the test site slipped into drive - I chased it down and jumped in - not smart !
