This cap is from the electrical & ignition section in the Rolls-Royce & Bentley parts catalogues for models built between 1956 to 1965.
The distributor cap helps create the spark that keeps your engine running and faulty or low-quality distributor caps reduce your car’s efficiency. The distributor cap is a vital part of your car’s ignition system. It works with the rotor arm to transfer electricity from the ignition coil to the spark plugs via high-tension cables. This generates a spark, which then ignites the fuel mixture and provides power for your car. As distributor caps are subject to a constant electrical charge, their metal terminals will eventually corrode.
Is your car starting to misfire frequently? Does it not start at all, or do you keeping hearing unusual noises coming from the engine? All of these problems are signs that you need to replace your car’s distributor cap.
