Well, top be honest, I don't really know what to look for in
inspecting these contacts. However, what I can say is that the ones in
the replacement distributor cap/rotor now look very much like the ones
I removed after 95k miles. Also, cleaning them seems to fix the
problem temporarily.

I'm not sure what you mean by center contact. Do you mean the
spring-loaded button which contacts the center of the rotor?

I did so on one occasion while the engine was misbehaving at night. I
saw no arcing.

I used parts from Autozone. The spark plugs and wires are Bosch. I
don't remember the brand of the replacement disty cap and rotor.

Thanks for any help you can provide,
