Bob, The distributor is all apart cleaned up centrifugal advance all lubed up. Now I am trying to put the snap ring on the shaft. It is a 7/16 hole and 1 and a 1/4 inches down to where the snap ring goes on. Haven't had any luck so far but should get it.
Be nice to have a tool. I know if I did this for a living I would have a tool of some sort.
