Distributor position

Distributor position

Postby dantheman [OP] » December 23rd 2015, 5:29pm

Just putting everything back together after replacing the gaskets and when I slide the distributor back in place, it is not seating in the same position as when I removed it. What do I need to do to make sure she runs right when I fire her back up?

There's an outside chance that I marked it after I removed it so I may be ok dice it does move as you pull it up and out.

Looks like it is just a tooth off by that mark. Pull it up and turn it that much to the next tooth. Let it spin back down.
