Ignition systems create a high voltage spike when the magnetic field collapses just before firing the spark plug. The excess energy is absorbed by the Condenser to prevent the reverse flow of voltage back to the battery. If your condenser is faulty the resulting malfunctions can range from radio interference to battery overcharge.
If you have noticed these symptoms it may very well be time to replace your factory condenser with this high quality, 2nd Generation Ignition Capacitor restoration part for your 1968-1971 Corvette.
