In order to get the set screw in a position so it can be easily removed, you have to get the rotor to rotate. Act as if you are going to start the car, but only hold the key in the start position for a split second. The cars engine will turn over, and the rotor will rotate, hopefully to where it is easier to get the screw out. If not, try again.

Take care.

SOURCE: 1996 Honda Accord Rough Idle Even After tune up

Perform a valve clearance inspection and adjust if necessary. Tight or sticking valves will cause a misfire or rough running concern. Note: Perform valve adjustment when the engine is stone cold. 4cyl: INT 0.26mm EXH: 0.30mm (V6 engine are hydraulic and no adjust necessary.) Also check for a sticking or stuck open EGR valve. For diagnostic purposes only: Remove the EGR valve. Place a business card over the EGR passage and bolt the EGR valve back on. This plugs the EGR ports and if the misfire goes away the EGR valve is partially stuck open and is defective.
Check for low fuel pressure. Check for low compression. Check cam timing. Check for a weak ignition coil. Also don't over look the possibility of worn or broken engine mounts which cause excessive engine movement and engine vibration. -hope this helps

1996 accord will not start has no fire to plugs

start with a new distributor cap and rotor button. Should probably replace the plug wires too. If still nothing, look to see that you're getting spark from the coil to the distributor.

You'll need to get piston number one at top dead center. Mark on the distributor housing to line up with the number one tower of the distributor cap. When you install the distributor, line up the rotor with the mark on the distributor. Here is also a link with more information that should help you:

How to change ignitor on 1991 honda accord

Honda has 2 distributors, Hitachi (with an internal ignitor) and Toyo Denso (with an external mounted ignitor). The toyo denso is removed by removing 2 bolts and a harness clip on the outside of the distributor. The Hitachi requires that you remove the dist. cap, rotor, and 'reluctor', which is under the rotor, the ignitor is under that, remove the retaining screws, make sure the screws are put back in the same locations, as one is a 'diamegnetic' screw, and must be replaced in the correct location.
