Distributor Cap - Sierra Marine Engine Parts - 18-5248 (118-5248)


The distributor cap regulates the fire sequence of the engine as part of the ignition system. Even though it is a minor component, a faulty distributor cap can disrupt the ignition and thus reduce engine efficiency. What are those? Distributor cap difficulties, such as clogged, cracked, corroded, or malfunctioning caps, can cause performance issues ranging from rough idle to stalling, or worse, your boat may refuse to start. Distributor cap from Sea Star Solution offers durability and longevity that exceed customer satisfaction and standard.
