Does anyone have a handy writeup for 3B distributor replacement? The
archives reveal mention of a tamper-resistant cover and difficult-to-reach
clamp nut, along with the alignment issue. Nothing specific on SJM or
Miller's site. Is it not really that hard of a job, just a bit difficult to
reach things without removing intake manifold? I have had a metal-geared
distributor kicking around for couple years and would like to get it in
there to see if it fixes the intermittent cutout issue (darn plastic gear).
