Question about 1989 Ford F 350
Hi , Can anyone out here help me? I need to time my motor after a major tuneup and I cant move the distributor. It looks like the alum. dist. has corrosion all around the base where it mates with the engine block. I realize the block is iron and the dist. is that white metal stuff so care must be used. I tried tapping, Liquid wrench, pb-blaster and talking nice but nothing short of a 16lb sledge is going to move it. Any ideas?????
Thanks for your help.
Use a aluminum drift punch and tap the distributor back and forth until it breaks free, be patient it will move, this problem is caused by varnish build up. I have run across this problem many times and always got it to move.
