1/2 or 13mm most likely, sometimes you need a "distributor wrench" or a swivel socket.

Want to remove and replace the distributor in my 1997 gmc


1 Remove the plastic cover from the engine block with a wrench, then let the spark plug wires lead you to the distributor. It's at the back of the engine block.


2 Remove the negative cable from the battery at the side of the engine compartment; carefully pull the spark plug wires off the distributor cap so you don't damage them. Use a screwdriver to take off the coil leads from the distributor and the electrical connector at the bottom of the distributor.


3 Loosen the clamps and take off the distributor cap. Mark the parts to align the rotor position to the distributor housing and the housing to the engine block. This will help replace parts correctly during distributor installation.


4 Unbolt the distributor hold-down bolt with a wrench and remove the distributor from the engine.


5 Install the new Sierra distributor, aligning the marks for proper seating in the engine block. When ordering the distributor, give the parts dealer your model, year and engine size. You can order part number A1841639 from Parts Train for a 4.3L engine.


6 Re-install the distributor hold-down bolt. Replace the distributor cap and put the clamps back on. Attach the electrical connector at the base of the distributor, put on the spark plug wires and coil leads, and hook up the negative battery cable.

What size wrench do I need to remove the rear bolt on the bracket over the fues rail replacing the intake manifold?


I'm sorry but I do not know what size wrench you need for that. You might call a Lincoln dealership and see if they know. A workshop manual might also have that information. Good luck!

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Tag and disconnect the spark plug wires from the distributor cap and coil
  3. Remove the distributor cap retaining hooks or screws and remove the distributor cap.
  4. Note the position of the rotor in relation to the base. Scribe a mark on the base of the distributor and on the engine to facilitate reinstallation.

The distributor must be bright to Top Dead Center (TDC) before removal.
  1. Attach a socket to the crankshaft damper retaining bolt and slowly rotate the engine clockwise until the indicating mark on the crankshaft damper is aligned with the 0 degree mark on the timing chain cover. The distributor rotor should now be aligned to the CYL. NO 1 alignment mark stamped into the camshaft position sensor. If not repeat the process until TDC is achieved.
  2. Disengage the camshaft position sensor connector and remove the rotor.
  3. Unfasten the distributor hold-down bolt and remove the distributor and hold-down clamp.
Other details can find in the Repair Manual ZJ-Secc-8D-Ignition-Systems

Good luck (remember rated this).
