Hey all I got to share a trick I learned last nite. I had to pull the
distributor on a 4.3 v6. I marked the distributor and the block before
removing it. I then marked the distributor where the rotor pointed after I
pulled the dist. out.
When I went to install the distributor it would not seat all the way. The
oil pump shaft was not lining up with the dist shaft. Instead of reaching in
the dist hole to move the oi pump shaft with a screw driver, I left the
dist. in place and turned the crank shaft. after about a quarter turn the
dist. dropped in place.
Just wanted to share this trick. I never heard of it before and thought it
was pretty cool.
