If you take the distributor out, your mouth can be sucking on a coffee, while you easily install the screws! Ed

You probably have a stubby, but will have to do a lot of research to discover a good mouth position. It is different for everyone.


I'd also like you to leave my stubby out this conversation please. :big smile: :spinning:

You betcha. I'm left handed but, for the record, I didn't say it was easy to change the points and condenser on the tractor. :) :)

I will clean points and adjust them with the dist. mounted. I remove points to dress them, but this weekend will be new points and condenser and I'll pull the dist. for sure.
