Laboratory Studies of Distributor Caps 630174

A chemical approach and simple test apparatus are combined to study engine distributor cap deterioration. This paper describes a convenient test which correlates qualitatively with other tests and field experience. The apparatus produces an environment which is similar to that found in use under severe conditions. With this apparatus, critical experiments were performed. Moisture and electrical stress appear to be the major factors in cap deterioration.
