Hi Casper565,

Thank you for the donation.

The distributor failing should not be related to the repairs carried out and should be a coincidence. However if the distributor is producing sparks which is jumping out through the cap, it could be a faulty cap, rotor, spark plugs or wires. There is a possibility of solving the problem with replacement of the above items instead of the distributor assy.
