Sorry to repeat a post , but I cant locate the old one. While back we had a discussion on preventing rust inside the MSD distributor. Someone posted the name of a spray lubricant that worked wonders. My module is covered , will take it apart and try to clean tomorrow.
Nice to buy some long term solution... thanks Larry

Google it, there are some interesting reads. I have never experienced that problem but I'm race only and it's either in the garage or a box.

Guys at the track today all b*chin about rust & MSD boxes. Buddy gave me a kit he uses, told me to pull the module and wire brush it. Then spread the dielectric grease thin, all over. Put stainless nuts on. Try this and probably order a spare module . Plus drilling a 2nd vent hole in the cap.

If you change it to the msd cap adapt number 8445 or 8420 it doesn't have rust issue like with the orignal msd cap/rotor on the msd 85551.
