Smile Recommendations for 3.9 tune-up parts and sources

Getting around to doing a tune-up on my newish-to-me RRC. Not as familiar with the 3.9 as I am with the GEMS 4.0 so venturing into new terrain. Got my plugs and wires sorted already. Need suggestions for:

- what rotor and cap should I consider? Is there a meaningful performance/longevity difference among different options?
- where to buy them.

Thanks.

I think the most important thing you need to know right now is how easy it is to screw up your distributor by yanking upward on the rotor.

Good to know. I plan to do the tune-up with the help of a friend who's done many before. It's exciting - a whole new realm of things I can mess up. Times like these it would be nice to have an Elias Christeas or PT Schram living down the street.
