3B distributor rotor options

Why would you think that the brand of the rotor might make a difference?
Even the wider tipped rotor will work in a stock 3B, chipped needs the
narrow tip to eliminate crossfire possibility. The wider tip is easily
narrowed, so any replacement can be made to work for any condition.
Personally, I have never had a need to replace a rotor or cap on any 20V I5.
