    Default Distributor Sheild

    Hello
    On a 1982 cross-fire ,can anyone tell me where the black plastic shield mounts. I just got a shield and it looks like I need to move wires just to get it in.
    Thanks,jimbil208

    It fit around the top of the distributor...on the rt side(pass)
    the leg goes in front of the dip stick for the tranny...behind the block,
    covering the distributor wires....seem to me I had to unplug the several groups of wires the get the past,on both sides.and the hood latch goes thru the rings on the top.

    It doesn't bolt on it fits over the top of the distributor,with a 'clip' if you will towards the front of engine.

    Do you have the Assembly Manual? It shows the installation.

    Spark plug cable retaining ring; sounds like you need one. The ring installs on the tops of the plug boots; ignition shield clips onto the ring.

    Hello

    I bought a high performance distrubtor cap and the ring does not fit on it. Therefore the sheild wil not fit.
    So does anyone need one?
