Anyone know what this is?
Okay I will chime in and say first off that it looks like a bling-bling wiring harness and cross fired so bad that things started to fry! The pics don't give enough clue to get real! If I am right, What do I win??? just kidding on that but the cap shows it to me! MSo far this is the most correct answer here.
Here is a wild ass guess. The old style points and condenser cap was to large to allow him to remove it with the cap on, or even remove the cap with wires intact. So, he ripped the out. And now it is either a crank trigger, or a small diameter 8570 dizzy.Damn...just beat me to it.
Not sure what it has to do with teh dist. cap though??
