How do you know definitly if the the distributor cap is bad as oppossed to rotor or coil or wires or spark plug. How can I defferentiate all these components.

Please enlighten me.
Look for CRACKS, CARBON TRACKING and BURNT AREAS around the TERMINALS . . . Rotors tend to BURN behind the CENTER contact to GROUND . . .
