1985 MB380se distributor cap problem
1985 Mercedes Benz 380SE
Question please regarding the distributor cap.
First, the distributor is the original.
I have several replacement distributor caps, including bosch, borg warner and bwd.
All 3 caps, all 3 brands, same problem.
The 2 bolts that secure the cap, you push down and turn ,
none of the bolts will reach down far enough to reach anywhere to secure them to the distributor,
no matter how far I push them down.
They wont reach the bottom of the distributor, nor are there any visible signs to me as to where exactly they latch on to.
Any suggestions ?
I know these caps are the right caps for my car.
The cap was always a little loose.
