Pull your dist cap off and turn engine to a nice spot to mark the rotor position, i like #1 cyl, and make some marks on the intake to refrence and simply pull straight up and drop the new one in and set your timing

How to replace an ignition rotor to a 1988 Ford Escort


Your vehicle may be equipped with either of the following ignition systems, depending on the year and engine combination:
* 1981-82 1.3L and 1.6L engines: Dura Spark II Ignition System
* 1982-85 1.6L Non-EFI and 1986 1.9L Non-EFI engines: Thick Film Ignition I (TFI-I) System
* 1983-90 1.6L EFI and 1.9L EFI engines: Thick Film Ignition IV (TFI-IV) System

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the distributor from the engine.
  3. Place the distributor assembly on a workbench.
  4. Remove the two TFI ignition module retaining screws.
  5. Pull the right side of the module down the distributor mounting flange and then back up to disengage the module terminals from the connector in the distributor base. The module may then be pulled toward the flange and away from the distributor.
Do not attempt to lift the module from the mounting surface, except as explained in Step 3, as the pins will break at the distributor module connector.


To install:
  1. Coat the baseplate of the TFI ignition module uniformly with a 1 / 32 in. (0.8mm) of silicone dielectric compound WA-10 or equivalent.
  2. Position the module on the distributor base mounting flange. Carefully position the module toward the distributor bowl and engage the three connector pins securely.
  3. Install the retaining screws. Tighten to 15-35 inch lbs. (1.7-4.0 Nm), starting with the upper right screw.
  4. Install the distributor into the engine. Install the cap and wires.
  5. Reconnect the negative battery cable.
  6. Recheck the initial timing. Adjust the timing, if necessary.

Hope helps.

I have a 87 chevy that is not starting after it warms up has a new batt and starter the alt is charging i can start it let it run 10 min wont start back let it set 1 hour starts up


1987 Chevy with a very old problem.

LACKING INFORMATION:
We believe it may have the 8 cyl, 305. or 350.

INFO:
We have reviewed your problem and have come up with the following theory and recommendation.

RECOMENDATION:
You have an HEI Distributor ignition.
The control module that is bolted in the bottom of the distributor it has a special heat dissipating grease that transfers the heat from the module to the heat sink. Over time it drys out or was not installed with the correct amount.

Replace the Control module and clean out the old grease and install new grease.

Hope this guides you to the correct fix for your vehicle.
