I just assembled factory NEW w

I just assembled factory NEW wires on my TR.........into NEW distributor caps. Readings (taken from the extender end of the wire, to the inside of the distributor cap) are as follows:

WIRE # 7 = 750 Ohms
WIRE # 8 = 950
WIRE # 9 = 1050
WIRE #10 = 1200
WIRE #11 = 1300
WIRE #12 = 1450

Coil wire = 500 Ohms

Extenders = 0 Ohms

I didn't assemble 1-6 yet, but I feel that they will be similar......more ohms for the longer wires.

I will keep these numbers as reference, as the wires get older.

Other side assembled.......sim

Other side assembled.......similar readings.

I used di-electric grease where the pointed screws enter the wire. Should I apply some in the center (coil) hole, on the inside of the cap? This is where the black carbon slides in. Or do I leave this dry? Should the brass terminals be dry, or coated (with this grease)?

Hi Henry....I left the terminals dry in my caps, but would be interested in hearing what others have to say.
