Posted by Anonymous on
Get the position of the engine to top dead cented by using the reference marks at front eng pulley and the reference point on the enngine. Remoe the plug wires(it will be obvious which ones will allow you to swinf the distributor out of the way. You should be able to move the cap out of the way far enough for the distributir to clear the cap when you pull it. If it wont clear remove the wires closest to the center of the engine and it will all out you to swing th cap up out of the way., from the cap from the the distributor first using, 'white out" to mark the wires before they are removed.although it should be obvious by the length where the they fit on the cap,Also mark with white out the position relating to the base of the distirbutor and the housing.
With the cap out of the way you will see the the distributor rotor and where it is pointing at. The didstribotor is gear driven, so it is easy to position it rotor in thr wrong place when it is seated. and the rotor will not line up with the mark. There should be two bolts 12mm at the bottom of the distributor holdiing it in to the cover. and then you can remove the distributor by pulling it upwards sometimes having to rotate the distributor left and right a little to get it to come out Note:, pay attention to the rotor as you lift it. It will rotate counter clockwise. carefully with the whiteout, mark the position of the center of the rotor is in.because when you install it it is going to rotate clockwise until the center of the rotor is pointing to the first mark you made on the distributor.Push the distriburtor down until you feel contact with the gear.If it doesn't just slide into place and when the distributior housing is seated Grab the top of the rotor and rotate slightly left and right until you feel it start to slip inoto plsce. When it is seated. The rotor should be pointed where it was before removal. If the tortor is pointed too much to the right if the mark, lift the distributiror, rotate about about a half an inch to the left and seat it again, You may have to play with it to get into proper position. Too much to the left to the rotate the to rotor the rotor a little more to the right.to the right. If you have followed those instructions,You should be able to get it the first time.at worst ti might talyou a few minutes of playing with it to get it on the mark. I hope I have been clear enough to have in as simplested terms as I colud helped you. I brokre it down in as detailed instructions as i could.
