Default Re: 39 Merc hesitating under load...driving me crazy


Thanks for all the input. After much of the input here suggested something to do with plug wires or ignition, I decided to dig back into the distributor.

Initially I wanted to verify that I didn’t have any crossed wires... turns out, the left side distributor cap had a hairline crack in it! Luckily, I had an NOS set sitting in a box. Installed those, problem gone. ZERO hesitation upon acceleration.
