Car's Apart ---- Coil Pickup ---- take apart distributor to change???
The car died on me yesterday, after searching the archives for some ideas, I decided to replace MAF sensor and TFI module. I couldn't reach the screws for the TFI without pulling the distributor. While the distributor is out, I'm replacing the coil pickup. But I'll be darned if I can figure out how.
I removed the two screws holding the plate that guides the rotor, but there are no fasters holding the plate beneath that to the rod that goes through the distributor. The gear and stop at the bottom of the distributor look like they have to come off to slide the entire assembly out of the casing to swap the coil pickup.
But the gear and stop look like they're being held in by pins (sort of like coiled up metal?) that can't come out?
