  • Distributor sticking

    Other than the clutch, what are some of the top reasons that the distributor would stick at the number 2 bin while going from 2-4?

    Quick update
    while distributor is fully extended and at the head pin,I put a little downward pressure near the trip levers I can feel it want to bind when I push it towards the 7 pin side. Bearing going bad at the mount?

      Check your rollers. They might be a bit tight

        They all seem to check out ok.
        How in the world would you get the needle bearings out anyway? The one clear at the top? (Or bottom,depending how you're looking at it lol)

          Search blind hole bearing puller.
          Prevent the problems. Don't do crash repairs.

            If you have a waffle-belt the belt is touching the iron tube that holds the distributor sides together.
