The distributor rotor just slides on the distributor shaft with no screws or hold downs on it.

How to remove distributor on 1984 monte carlo 305 v8


bring engine to top dead center #1 with the timing marks. remove distributer cap and note position of rotor direction and mark on the distributor housing were the rotor is pointing. also mark the position of the distributor mark to a position on the motor, then unbolt the distributor holding bolt and remove. pull up on the distributor and note which way the rotor moves as you pull the distributor out. again mark where the rotor is pointing when the distributor is out. the reason for the marking of rotor position and distributor position is so when you reassemble you line up the marks to get it into the proper position when the distributor is back in place. then you have to check the timing and set. as far as the pickup coil remove the distributor gear lock pin remove the gear and remove the distributor shaft to replace the coil. reassemble in reverse order.

What does cap and rotor look like for 1988 Ford Ranger 2.9 with EFI


The cap is on top of the distributor, where your spark plug cables start from. Loosen the screws for the cap and lift it up and away. Directly beneath it is the rotor, on top of the distributor shaft. Most just pull off, but a few are held by a screw.

How do i install electrctrical portion of ignition switch for my 2003 dodge intrepid


Hi Robert, I'm glad to help. Here's how to remove and replace the Ignition Switch on your 2003 Dodge Intrepid. FIRST: remove the steering wheel shaft covers that rest over your ignition swtch. Once the covers are removed you now have access to the screws that hold the ignition switch in place. NOW: unplug the electrical connector, then take out the screws that hold it in place. NEXT: You'll need to turn the key to the proper position to release the switch while pulling the switch backward. Once its out install the new one and your done. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Robert.

How to remove the axel shafts from the Diff. 94 ford expl.


Do one side at a time, Jack the front wheel off the ground and remove. Remove the Brake Caliper and Rotor. Remove the large center nut in the Hub. Now remove the two bolts holding the lower part of the strut to the A-Arm and separate. You should be able to pull the hub down far enough to get the end of the axle out with some wiggling and possibly swearing, it not you can remove the lower A-Arm and just pull it off. PLACE A DRIP PAN UNDER THE SPOT WHERE THE AXLE GOES INTO THE TRANSMISSION BEFORE PULLING THE AXLE! Replace the axle to trany input seal and reverse order my instructions. Repeat for other side. This is a good time to replace Brake Pads and Rotors as well.

1988 honda accord -wouldnt start- there is power to the fuel pump will turn over just not start- what am i missing?


Pull a spark plug lead off and put a spare plug in, hold it against the block while a helper cranks the engine over. If you have no spark, make sure that the camshaft is turning as it is possible the timing belt has broken. Sometimes you can look through the oil filler at the cam while someone cranks, if you can't see through there, you can take the distributor cap off. This will also allow you to check to make sure that the rotor is firmly attached to the distributor shaft. Sometimes the little screw that holds it on, drops out and the rotor falls off. If the rotor is turning and you had no spark, it is possible you have either a bad distributor pick-up coil or module inside the distributor, a bad pgmfi relay, or a bad ignition switch. If you check for spark, have none, and the distributor is turning, post back here and I'll help you narrow it down further.

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.
