    I replaced my distributor cap and rotor but I didn't use a marine rotor which is round and has fins in the bottom of it I used an automotive rotor. My engine was running fine the whole day and then it started backfiring when getting to the marina. I changed all my spark plugs again but it is still backfiring. I am thinking it is pick up coil sensor that maybe the marine rotor was designed to keep it cool or something. Is this part difficult to replace and will I need to remove the spindle and re adjust the timing?

    This fits under the rotor shaft and the distributor must be disassembled to replace. Two wire plug in goes into the Ignition Module.
