Hi, my name should probably be changed from "justaguy" to "justanidiot" or this one, but I am new to cars. I am trying to put on a Pertronix ignitor, but I dont know how to take off the distributer cap, there are those two clips that I've flipped off, but the cap is not coming off, what else do I have to have off for the tope to come up? and do I twist it? or pull it. Also, the guy sold me a "single points" ignitor, I thought it was dual points, so did he sell me the right one? I have a c-code 66 289. Thank you very much for you help and your toleration of my mechanic incompotance :)

Those clips should Pop off and the cap should just lift off......If you have a stock C code you have single pionts.....

As KeenBean said, after you pop the 2 clips, the cap should just lift off. It may have some crud just holding it on. Smack it good the ball of your hand ... should come right off.
