Dist. Rotor

I went through all this rotor anxiety a few years ago, and ended
up running both the fat and thin. Truth be told I experienced no
difference. However, I now run the thin rotor because I can get
it from Rod. He will tell you the proper part has an 11 mm tip
and the other one is 17mm. 

One could make a case for better burning from a wider tip -
longer spark duration - and I would be hard put to see, from
looking inside the distributor cap, that the tip width could
possibly compromise arcing between cylinders. The cap contacts
are too far apart. I believe there are ECU monitoring issues
involved here, and religious convictions aside, I am inclined to
follow the factory reccomendation.
