No real words of wisdom here, just the usual Bentley admonishments.  I'd be
curious to see pictures of the process.  Never actually did it myself as I'd
bought a metal-geared distributor prior to the GP.

I did replace that distributor, and w/out a special factory tool and all!

Hi all,

Finally getting around to installing the new metal gear distributor I
purchased on the GP a while back.  In preparation (and in hopes of a low
frustration job), I have ordered a few tools like the distributor alignment
tool (3233) and intake manifold tool (VAG 1669).
I will be replacing the occasionally clickety lifters and the t-belt as

Can anyone out there who's familiar with the distributor R&R tell me if
there is anything tricky about the distributor alignment?  This is my first
distributor replacement and I am not sure what to expect beyond what the
Bentley reveals...

...I hope to have my new low buck digital camera by the time the under hood
festivities commence, so I am planning to document the procedure and do a
write-up.  I will make it available to anyone interested.
