The bushings in my Delco Distributor on my D17 are worn. The shaft and bushings appear dry, as if they are not getting lubed. How are they supposed to get lubed? Do they get oiled from the engine oil,or am I supposed to manually lubricate them through the set screw in the side of the housing?

That's one bushing in there. No holes, grooves, slots, just one smooth bushing. After it's installed, light oil is filled in the cavity around the bushing through the little plug you mention. It's apparently supposed to work it's way through the bronze as needed. But I would certainly give the shaft some initial lube if you take it apart. The oil line squirts a little oil on the drive gears.

It is lubricated from the engine oil.

Today's Featured Article - An Old-Time Tractor Demonstration - by Kim Pratt. Sam was born in rural Kansas in 1926.

In the rural area he grew up in, the highlight of the week was Saturday when many people took a break from their work to go to town. It was on one such Saturday in the early 1940's when Sam was 16 years old that he ended up in Dennison, Kansas to watch a demonstration of a new tractor being put on by a local dealer. It was an Allis-Chalmers tractor dealership, ... [Read Article]
