Ride: Ford Falcon ED

Location: Hobart
TAS, Australia

So when I was replacing my cap on the dizzy for my el falcon as I was pulling the plugs out the distributor seemed to have some play in it, is this normal? and how good does the ground to the coil have to be? is it grounding through the block? because the bolts going back onto the block don't seem to want to do up they just keep turning feel like they getting tighter then back to loose, I got the coil as solid as I could but if its using it as the earth connection to it might not be good enough

what do you mean by that? .. do you mean the dizzy itself or the part the rotor mounts to?

either stripped bolts or thread in block or wrong bolts/wrong hole?. bolts do need to do up tight/firm so coil stays in the one place. don't think it earths to block but i'm unsure.
