What are some of the warning signs BEFORE the distributors in 82/83Ts actually go out (because of heat getting to that computer circuit in the base)? How many miles do they usually last?

My car, besides idling rough, has been stalling on the freeway. It will lose power for a second, regain power, lose it again, then run normal until the next occurance. I suspect it is my ignition system (distributor) -- though I still have a few connectors to clean. Another thing is it seems to idle better when the engine is first started.

Thanks for any information!!!

RE: Please advise! Distributor warning signs 82/83

One problem I was having was on the stock dist, wearing out the shaft bushing causing slop in the shaft. It would get so bad that the pole peice would slam into the pick-up coil breaking off little peices.

Checking the shaft and make sure it doesn't have slop in it would be one thing to make sure of.
