The rotor is a key component to the ignition system. The distributor rotor passes the voltage from the ignition coil to the engines cylinders to ignite the air fuel mixture and power the engine. The distributor rotor works by spinning within the distributor cap continuously. The spinning rotor continuously makes and breaks contact with the terminals which intermittently creates an electrical connection through the ignition wires and to the spark plugs. Rotors wear out easily which effects the reliability of the spark at the spark plugs. If the spark is weak or is mistimed with the piston, your engine will have trouble starting. A few symptoms of a worn or faulty ignition rotor are your engine misfiring, not starting, or making unusual clicking noises. Rotors are relatively inexpensive so if you are having trouble starting your equipment, check the build up and wear on your rotor and swap out your rotor to get your equipment up and running again.
