M Distributer question

Postby JBall8019 » Sat Mar 25, 2006 10:58 pm

Hi,
There is a slotted screw under the distributor cap. would this be a point to add oil? I was wondering becasue the distibutor sounds alot louder than my cubs' distributor.
Thanks

I think i have some zerks in the barn. Will just a few pumps from my grease gun work? also i have been putting oil in my cubs distributor, will that cause any dammage?

Use a zerk that isn't plugged.

lol!!! i already checked that zerk to see if it was working properly and it was. i think i will try again but making sure the zerk isnt snug in the hole so air can escape.
