Distributor Question

I went to replace the cap and rotor and the old rotor was a little tough to get out and when I replaced it with the new ones the cap does not seat all the way. The old cap and rotor do not seat all the way either, any suggestions on what happened? Thanks, Brett

If you pull too hard on the rotor while trying to remove it, the distributor shaft can become mis-aligned. If this is the case with your distributor, I am not sure what the remedy is other than rebuilding it. Maybe someone else here has figured out a quick fix. For future reference, it is better to take a chisel and break the old rotor to remove it than pull upwards with force.

when you install the new rotor use a little dielectric grease to prevent future hang up.

Fix it, had to pull the distributor as the springs on the counter weights were off. Took it apart, installed and timed, she runs like a top now.
