I'm assuming you want to adjust the timing. There is a hold down bolt underneath it, 9/16 I think. It is holding a C shaped piece of metal that goes around the distributor case where it goes into the engine. Just loosen that. If you want to remove the distributor, take that bolt right out.
With the bolt loose you can set your timing with a light. Make sure you tighten it back up when you are done and recheck your time after that. Sometimes the distributor can be turned while tightening. Hope this helps.

1987 dodge ramcharger stay running after key is in run position.


The ignition switch has two positions inside the switch. There is an ignition feed when the ignition is in the crank position and another feed for the run position.

Both feeds may come out the same external terminal on the switch, but internally there are 2 contact points, one for each positon on the keyswitch.

The common symptom is the engine will hit or run briefly off the startup and then die. It does this because it loses the ignition feed. Not really familiar with the module wiring for a Chrysler, but I was 37 Years old when your car was built. In the day, you could bypass the ignition switch and wire a power source(alligator clip) directly to the coil + terminal and once the car was started it continued to run this way.

Then some nut invented the solid-state Module. It complicates testing and you know the rest.

You can get wiring diagrams free at Autozone.com by registering your car. I remember tuning up the dual-point distributors and the 440 Six-Packs for this era car.

Please rate my info.
