It should be pretty easy...one wire at a time is the way to go....just hold the old cap with the wires still attached in the same orientation as the new cap installed, and swap the wires from old cap to new 1 at a time....hopefully it fixes you sputtering problem

Sputtering, hard start in moisture


next time it does this, try spraying wD40 on the distributor, all around it. if this fixes it, you have a crack in the distributor cover. just replace it. good luck
