  • Distributor Question.

    Hey There Gents, Im having a problem where the distributor moves violently from the 2 pin to the 3 pin...so sometimes the pin will overshoot, know what i mean. So im wondering if you guys could tell me what causes this and how to fix it. Thanks For Your Help Once Agian.

    Re: Distributor Question.

    Ive found over the years ive been doing this that there can be several causes,
    4 most common ive found are : 1) Bind in post where distributor sits on weldment or post not loc-tited and spins with distributor and binds on a bur.
    2) Rough edge somwhere on your index cam causing roller to catch.
    3) Bind in distributor drive shaft , like if you have the housing and ball type there maybe a spot where the balls are catching in the housing,
    4) Distributor drive shaft to long bottoming out in housing at motor end.

    If you cant find the reason you can try a fix i found on here, use a kicker spring on the fat left hand spring on the back of your distributor, the one that holds the safety link, ( put kicker spring INSIDE the fat spring)

    Hope ive been some kinda help to ya mate

        <font size="2" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">worn/sloppy clutch parts can also do it. With us it's usually the clutch or the drive shaft bottoming out in the housing weldment. Another cheat with a spring is to take a belt tensioner spring for the pit drive belt and hook it onto the lateral drive arm and the post of the o-pan pin, holds the lateral drive arm up against the cam and usually helps with sway from the 3 to 2.
        All I want in life is to turn wrenches and climb around pinsetters/pinspotters again :/

          Move the 3-pin bin back a foot or so
          The impossible often has a kind of integrity to it which the merely improbable lacks.

                              Hello Agian. Well I ripped apart the Clutch and found that i had a ditch in my worm gear, and that was making all of the hassle. Anyway, thanks to Rep, you were right on, and to jimmy jam ...sorry for my error, as we all know it was supposed to be 3 to the 2. I can assure you that my b.e. motor is running reasonably well. Anywho, thanks for all the replies fellas.. especially to jimmy for poking fun at my mistake..grrr.
