It isn't something that's very easy to describe. You have to pull the distributor out. The plate is usually screwed to the distributor base.
Try this first: remove the distributor cap and lightly spray the baseplate with WD-40 and allow to dry completely. Test drive the truck and see what happens. Check with your local Mopar dealer for a distributor rebuild kit. It should come with detailed instructions and good drawings. If not, find a Mopar club near you and ask if they have anyone that can rebuild it for you and that will do it for a 12-pack.
