Distributor question


Recommended Posts

Does the bolt that tightens the distributor need to be completely removed before taking the distributor out. I’ve been trying to slowly ease back into working on my cars but I’m still struggling with my hands and while trying to pull it out it would twist easily but not lift. It’s been almost a year since removing one from my other car.

I recruited and initiated a new generation of 02 shade tree mechanics. My oldest is the mechanical director of his engineering and robotics team at his high school. I had to

wait till he was done studying for his SAT or my wife would kill me. We went out this afternoon and installed a Themis alternator bracket, the alternator with fresh poly bushings then removed the distributor.

I love to see the kids getting their hands dirty.  It kept me out of a lot of trouble when I was young, and when I was older it saved me a ton of money doing it myself.
