1-Mismatched upper springs one is wrong,

I prefer do do it just like it was when new. Get the drive gear correctly indexed and drop the dizzy in. No guessing later. Plus some caps are marked as #1. To me it just is right and makes a quick diagnosis easier if a problem pops up.
Your message box is full I e-mailed a buddy that I thought would be interested and he responded with this. Just so you know Mancini racing sells these new at 161.00 for the covers and 135.00 for the air cleaner. I realize you can ask what you want but knowing this may help the guy sell them.
