Question is: How to proprely replace wires, coil, distributor cap and rotor without messing up the ignition?

I got all new parts since my coil and wires are badly corroded.

BTW: Everything is stock (Bosch) on '91 Veloce

Take the splash cover off of the distrubutor cap. Unclip the cap and move it up so that you can easily see it and work on it. Transfer 1 wire at a time and orient it by the NOTCH in the base ring of the caps. The cap will only go on 1 way due to the notch. Once the wires are transferred, replace them 1 at a time and then reinstall the cap.

Good luck!!! Take pictures so if you get it hosed up, you can get back to the starting point.

You can also mark all of the wores with a white out pen first.

On the distributor splash guard in the bottom foto, the rubber boot through which the cables go, should fit over the top of this guard, not inside as you have it.......just a point:)

Good catch but hard to understand. Can you post a pic of the proper install?
