My car keeps burning out condensers
Hi guys-my 2 L single point distributor just ate its second condenser.. The first was a made in Italy one and the second was a generic that cross referenced to the car. Both separated where the wire comes out of the condenser body which may just be a coincidence but certainly seems odd
I have a Bosch blue 3 ohm coil ( which actually measured four ohms, not sure if that matters ) on it and new correct plugs. Plug wires are new.
When the first one went out I think my points gap being too narrow contributed to it, but this one went out with the points gap at .019 and it was only about 120 miles of driving before it failed.
Any ideas on what is going on - or just bad luck?
