you didn't say what enjine or year, but most pull the cap check to see where rotor is, they only go in two ways, put new one in eith rotor pointing same way


You want to change the distributor or just install the new cap and rotor? Most caps either have two screws or two clips to hold it in place. Make SURE that you put the wires into the CORRECT places on the cap! The rotor just snaps in place and can only go one way.
