    Hitachi or TEC

    I'm trying to order cap and rotor for the distributor.
    Could someone tell me how I can tell if my distributor
    is made by Hitachi or TEC? According to
    http://www.hondaautomotiveparts.com, the type
    of carb makes a difference.

    By the way, the distributor has the following stamped on the
    body:
    D4R86-28 7103 B

    Thanks.

    (1) What brand of HT wire should I get? NGK is $30. Genuine Honda is $45.

    (2) For a tune up, what should I replace on the distributor besides
    the cap, rotor, and HT wires?

    Thanks!
