Question about 1985 Ford Ranger
I have the bolts out of my distrubutor cap but it won't spin to change my timing, and looking at it it doesn't appear to me that, that is how it is suppost to work. the bolts go right though a stationary object. Is this how my timing is suppost to be changed or do I spin the router inside to change it or what? Thanks for your help.
The bolt you have to losen is underneath the distributor body. Those are just the screws to hold the cap on.
