i have a 1964 ? evinrude 60 hp, mod 60453S ser E05311
ive read related post but i think I'm missing a part
i have the rotor, and distributer cap but there seems to be too much gap between them.
as cyl.1,3 had spark but 2,4 did not .
i changed the points (2), condenser(1)
first spin had good spark on all 4,
put plugs into cyl heads. spin and nothing ,
took alll back out,
all 4 no spark
i may be in need of new cap, rotor ??? if so where do i find?
local parts shop said there is a pc and spring between cap and rotor??
i dont have parts breakdown to look at.
yes points are gapped ok.
the distributor cap is 3 3/8 x 5 3/4.
covers the coil box at the rear third and has the four wire posts on the forward end.
there is a spring in the cap to make contact with the coil pack contact.
center of the cap has a brass post 3/8 diameter looks to be carbon core
looks as the rotor has been riding on it .
(brass filings around it) but no spring or spinner cap to contact the rotor.
