Re: distributor cap vent
I'm all for BOTH a sucker and a blower for the distributor cap... let me explaine befor you all die laughing your ceder ends off.
1. A Blower... pressurize the cap with a small amout of PSI from an external soruce of clean air... I'd suggest this be selectable for water crossings to help keep moisture out of the cap. If not selectable, the fresh air would mix and decrease ionized crankcase vapors from making carbon trails in the inside of the cap.
2. A sucker... By installing a vacuum you can remove the crankcase vapors and reburn them. Clean up the atmosphere.. no downside.
3. I would install the blower at the top and the sucker on the bottom at the side of the cap... unless I could find a place in the housing to install it. Why, because the blower and the sucker being so placed causes the vapors to be expelled at the bottom of the distribuor. This draws the vapors AWAY from the high voltage and ionization area, decreasing the possiblitiy of arc and carbon trails and increasing reliabilty.
4. If you have the older LED style pointless, or points style ignition system, then you never read this post!
