The mechanics who gave me the $375 price said I'd have to replace the distributor 'cause it would be full of oil. After looking at pictures of htem, I kind of doubt they would fill with oil, (or my car would run at all, which it's doing quite well!) If it is full of oil, I'll at least clean it out thuroughly and see how it runs.
If a timing light is all I need to get the timing just right, then I'm off scott free! I remember how to do that from my old '68 Chevy!
The doubt is, I seem to remember something about. If I don't put the distributor back in EXACTLY the same way, I'm doomed with a car that won't run quite right. Is that accurate, or will a timing light correct any minor mis-adjustment in re-threading the distributor back on?
