Hi dads taxi, I agree with umed, definitely worth cleaning the contacts inside the distributor cap. ***** of a job but costs nothing except blood, skin and a bad back. Chip all the crap off the contacts and give the whole cap a good clean inside and out with petrol. Mine needs doing every two or three years otherwise it gets to be impossible to start when cold/wet. I wouldn't bother to replace it though, just clean it every few years. Definitely the first thing I'd try if it hasn't been done for a while.
