Greasing Rotor

I am about to change the plug wires, cap, and rotor on my '97 Accord. I am wondering if dielectric grease should be used within the distributor, namely on the metal contacts of the rotor.

Thanks.

That would be a No. Do not put anything on those, just clean them.

So I shouldn't even grease the ends of the plug wires connecting to the cap?

On the plug wire connections would be okay; under the cap would not be a good idea as marbo says. Under the cap the grease would tend to collect dirt.
